The Peranaken Museum tells the story of the people of the same name who are the descendants of Chinese tradesmen who settled in what is now Singapore from the 12th to the 15th century. The exhibits are spread across three floors and the artefacts all help to describe the traditions of the Peranakan culture. It has the biggest and the best collection of historic Peranakan artefacts in the world and is a fantastic place to learn all about the origins of modern Singapore and the meanings of some of the traditional items you will see replicated in markets and shops all over the city.
