That's a long time for renovations. But having been before, it probably needs to be closed for that long. Still, Singapore can build 5 new MRT stations in half that time, so you tell me.
Maybe we will be treated to some new wax heroes...More
This little known museum is in a charming colonial bungalow on a hill. Read and watch a video on how the Malay Regiment fought a brave battle against the enemy. There are plagues with the names of those that perished.
This is a must do, especially for people interested in history. You'll be moved by the best in the human spirit. The entire visit doesn't take much over 2 hours, so I'd suggest the following: MRT to Haw Par Villa (1 - 2 hr), go...More
The museum is a small house on the top of the hill. It has many personal items and personal stories of families of the soldiers. It is worth a visit if you are into war history. Too bad there was nobody working inside to answer...More

It seemed rather out of the way for public transport, especially MRT. As I said in my review, I took a taxi and even then, had to have the hotel personnel also give directions to the driver. I would advise pre-printing a map of the location with Google Maps or some other app so the taxi driver can see the destination. If you ask your question about public transport in the regular forum, there may be an expert who can help with ideas. I have found the Singapore "experts" very helpful.
