Lonely Planet review
A testament to the Peranakan (Straits-born locals) cultural revival in the Lion City. Opened in 2008, it has 10 thematic galleries and a variety of multimedia exhibits designed to introduce visitors to historical and contemporary Peranakan culture.
In addition to featuring traditionally crafted, beaded Peranakan clothing and exquisitely carved antique furniture, the museum also has a number of interactive exhibits. Our favourite is the diorama displaying a traditional Peranakan home, complete with two video-mounted portraits of elders who argue with each other about whether or not their descendants are leading culturally appropriate lives.
