Memories at Old Ford Factory


Book a hotel near here

This building housed Asia's first Ford vehicle assembly plant, opening in 1941. Only four months later, during the Japanese Occupation, it was forced to transform into serving Japanese company Nissan to build military vehicles. 

Today, the renovated building is a historic site and a museum. Through the use of multimedia, visitors can watch recorded interviews, documentaries, interactive maps and clips that recount the events during that period. Sketches, photographs and quotes fill the walls and document the brutal and ruthless treatment of civilians including children and infants by the troops. 

For nature lovers, we recommend to combine the visit with a walk along the nearby Green Corridor trail or visit to the Bukit Timah Hill and Nature Reserve. There are lovely cafes and restaurants at nearby Railmall and Bruce @ Old Firestation, which can be both reached by a short walk.
