Doesn't take long to go around but very pleasant way to spend an hour or so whilst walking around. Very informative and some nice artifacts to look at.

“Beautiful architecture ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2015 NEW via mobile

If you like culturally significant objects like bowls and spoons and beds and furniture you'll love this place.
The building is beautiful and has a very calm energy.
It tells the story of the peranakan/mixed race culture. outlines wedding traditions and historical ideas.
Not large. Not to my taste. But well done.

“Getting to know the people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

The Peranakan developed a society in Singapore with its own language, customs and way of life. Never heard of them? This museum, very interactive, with docents available for interesting tours, is the place to go. A great respire in the middle of the day when a cool place is needed, or a retreat from the afternoon rain this is a great space. Easy to meander on your own, but follow the suggestions of the staff for a great visit.
