The Former Ford Factory (also Old Ford Motor Factory and Old Ford Factory depending on sources) is located along Upper Bukit Timah Road at Bukit Timah in Singapore. It is the place where British forces under Lieutenant-General Arthur Percival surrendered to Japanese forces under Lieutenant-General Yamashita Tomoyuki on 15 February 1942 after the Battle of Singapore. The Old Ford Motor Factory had since been gazetted as a National Monument in 2006, and converted into an exhibition gallery and archive named Memories at Old Ford Factory.

  • Very good coverage of the WW2 era in Singapore and what life was like during it. Also shared some important insight on post WW2 life and links to modern Singapore as well. Good experience + there's usually not many people. Scarves can be collected at the counter as it can get a tad too cold
  • See once, probably no need for repeat visit. It's a small place, you can be done with all the exhibits in under 2 hours even if you go through them very thoroughly. Mostly static displays, with some multimedia and interactive kiosks. Air-conditioning is really cold, and while they have shawls available to loan, I thought they ought to have just fixed the over-zealous cooling.
