I really enjoyed this museum - and I'm a fairly keen museum visitor. It's in a beautiful building which includes a small, but interesting, shop of all things Paranakan to the left of the entrance where I bought several Nonya cookbooks. The exhibits are organised by theme - weddings, birth, religion, death, food, kitchens and dining, pottery, pastimes (eg beadwork), jewellery, a display of beautiful kebayas, information about the lives of significant Peranankn people etc. As you go through the museum, there are many short films about different aspects of Perankan culture which you can watch with earphones while sitting on a small stool - much appreciated as I had already done so much walking in Singapore my legs were starting to give out. And, of course, the films really bring the culture to life if, like me, you knew very little about it except for its delicious food! Don't miss the small sculpture of a cat on the front steps of the museum!
