I did not plan for this visit and I happened to walk past here. As Singaporean is free to visit museums, I decided to go in and take a look. It is definitely worth the visit with many old items to see, all interesting.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

My friend and I planned an hour at this museum, but we ended up spending the whole afternoon there as there were so many interesting exhibits and artefacts showcasing the rich culture and heritage of the Peranakan people.

We were impressed with the guided tour and the knowledge of the tour guide there. Highly recommended!
