Where is Battle Box Museum located

I can't find it on the map. Thanks! - Hanoi Scarlet - Guest

Where Battle Box Museum located
The Battle Box was a long-forgotten national heritage site, now considered as a national heritage war museum preserving one of the most important periods in Singaporean history. It is located at Fort Canning Park, several meters below ground. (2 Cox Terrace, Singapore 179622, accessible by the MRT and the bus)

Truly a premier tourist attraction in SG, this historic site is hailed as one of the most prominent WW2 sites in the country. What was once a massive military bunker 9 meters underground is now an eerie imperial war museum whose walls still resonate history.

Japanese Morse code etchings on the walls and life-size models re-enacting the fateful surrender to Japan act as a memorial and a lasting reminder of how Singapore was turned over to the Japanese from their British colonizers.
