A very special place - 3 in 1 house - full of old memories which are very well displayed. This is a +/-1h visit worth if you want to understand what was local life a century ago.

An original Peranakan house that has been converted into a museum. You can view by yourself or view with a guide. We spent about a half hour there.

Lovely place. Full of history on local Peranakan cultures. For those who have watched Little Nonya drama serial in Singapore, this is a must see attraction. Must see to start off any holiday.

found this museum while exploring some of the back streets and we were both pleasantly surprised by how large and detailed it was. Beautiful old building with lots of interesting information

Well preserved and presented. A journey back into the later part of Nyonya history of a typical Chinese migrant making it in the South East Asia, and the ability to work with the then great British empire administration in the then Malaya peninsula.

Went on a Sunday, paid extra for the guided tour. The tour guide gave very clear explanation about the different features of the house (although sometimes it does feel a bit rushed). Everything inside the house is very well preserved and maintained, loved the little...More
