Peranakan Museum

Loves: Exquisite Peranakan crafts and souvenirs at the gift shop.

Our Advice: Join the free guided tours (1 hr) to understand more about the exhibitions. Take note that guided tours are usually not available on public holidays and from mid-December to early January (volunteer guides' annual break).

Not many tourists would be aware of the Peranakan community, which forms an integral part of Singapore’s social landscape. This is where the charming Peranakan Museum can come handy. The small yet elegant space offers everything you need to know about this quixotic and vibrant community, albeit with a good measure of fun and excitement.


Spread over ten galleries in three floors, the Peranakan Museum displays the world’s finest artefacts of the community. Let your eyes soak in the visual beauty of textiles, jewellery, handicraft and furniture. The interactive and multimedia exhibits bring to life this interesting culture and the life led by its people.
