Singapore Peranakan Museum


Visiting Peranakan Museum recently brought me back to the past and learnt about Peranakan Chinese culture here.

The museum presented the cultural and traditional link amongst the Peranakan communities in the former Straits Settlements of Singapore, Malacca, Penang, and Southeast Asia. There are 10 permanent galleries occupying three exhibition floors displaying unique and vibrant beading and embroidery works together with colorful textile, gold and silver, porcelain wares, and antique furniture in teak and black wood.

The Peranakan Museum, launched in April 2008, presents a Southeast Asian-wide view of Peranakan culture in Singapore. It houses the world's most comprehensive and finest collection of Peranakan artefacts. (Below are the photo of Asian Cevilization Museum, a related museum of Peranakan)
