It was great to find out a bit more about the Peranakan culture. Loved the building and all the things on display in it. An easy walk from City Hall MRT and quite near to the Singapore Art Museum which could be visited at the same time.

This should be your first stop in Singapore if you want to learn all about the local culture. The experience is like a travel in the past and it will make you look at Singapore with different eyes! The entrance is 6 Singapore $ and you will need at least a couple of hours to visit the museum. There are restaurants and coffee shops around to keep you going.

The museum is small enough to visit in about an hour but gives you a real understanding of Peranakan history in Singapore.
The guided tours are excellent and very interesting. there are plenty of hands on activities to keep children occupied.
