The Peranakan Museum is a historic building dating back to 1912 which showcases the native culture through interactive exhibits and Multimedia Shows. The Peranakan Museum is dedicated to the culture of Southeast Asian Peranakan communities, and it houses one of the greatest and most comprehensive collections of Peranakan artefacts.

Spanning three stories, the exhibits here vividly illustrate the social customs and distinctive visual arts of the Peranakans.
