"Insight Into Peranakan Culture"

Few new cultures are as distinctive and rich as that of the Peranakan (Straits Chinese). Deeply entrenched in the glory of ancient women and traditional folklore, this resplendent museum hearkens back to the heyday of the rich Peranakan culture. A reproduction of a Peranakan house of the early 20th century, the Peranakan Museum lends stirring insights into the vibrant and resonant nuances of this very culture. Chinese, Malay and, to a lesser extent, European influences are evident in the clothes, architecture and lavish furnishings, highlighting the affluent lifestyle of the Peranakans. Many treasured artifacts, ceramics and collections from the 17th-century Qing dynasty porcelain and intricate beaded embroidery are fine examples of the heritage of this unique culture. Elaborate and insightful, the museum shelters a thematic representation of the lives and times of the Peranakan people across a multitude of galleries.
