Important notice

We are pleased to advise that Sandakan Memorial Park including the Sandakan Memorial Pavilion and Visitors Information Centre has reopened to the public.   

To ensure the health and safety of everyone at the site, visitors are asked to wear face masks and follow social distancing and hygiene practices.  Temperature checks will also be undertaken upon arrival, and details collected as required by the Standard Operating Procedures issued by the Malaysian Government and local authorities. 

The Sandakan Memorial Park is adjacent to the site of the original Sandakan prisoner of war (POW) camp. For the visitor, the story of Sandakan is revealed at several memorial and interpretive stations around the park. This booklet has been designed to allow visitors to explore the park at their own pace. It contains information about the Sandakan POW camp, war relics used by the prisoners and important points of interest that convey the experiences of Sandakan POWs. Numbered posts on the ground correspond to the numbered information in this booklet.
