Peranakan Museum

The Peranakans are sometimes referred to as “Baba-Nyonya”, a contraction of the Chinese word for father and a variation on the word “donha”, meaning woman in Portuguese. Their unique culture dates back to the 15th century when marriages started occurring between Malaysian, Burmese and Indonesian women with Chinese merchants. Adjoining the Asian Civilisations Museum, the Peranakan Museum is dedicated to these people and boasts a wealth of treasures: from an embroidered table decoration made with more than a million glass beads, to details from the rituals of a marriage stretching over twelve days and exquisite ceramics. Make the most of this opportunity to explore the expertise of this ancestral culture, with only 500 representatives remaining in Singapore today.
