Peranakan Museum hotels
Singapore City’s Peranakan Museum, part of the Asian Civilizations Museum, explores the development of the Peranakan, or Descendant, culture throughout Singapore and surrounding Malay regions. Originating from Chinese immigrants in the 15th and 16th centuries, the Peranakan have adopted many Malaysian customs and arts, including popular clothing, jewellery, and textile patterns. With interactive exhibitions and vibrant collections of craftsmanship and luxury, the Peranakan Museum is a fascinating look into the lives of a fusion culture that helped shape Singapore today.
- Explore galleries one through five to discover the roots of the Peranakan culture through artefacts as well as stories from early settlers such as the 12-day wedding, gift-giving, and rituals, which are re-enacted on the second level’s galleries two through five.
- Visit galleries six through eight to explore Peranakan’s religious, social, political, and traditional history through expansive collections of arts and crafts important to the region’s customs.
- Enjoy galleries nine and ten, which feature a veritable Peranakan banquet display, complete with a traditional porcelain collection.
Visitors arriving to Singapore City via plane should arrive to the Changi Airport, which is located in Singapore City’s northeastern regions and services both international and domestic flights. The Peranakan Museum is located near the southern tip of Singapore City, slightly to the northwest of the downtown centre. Nestled against Armenian Street, the Peranakan Museum is located approximately a block or two from several bus stops. Stamford Court and Armenian Church are the museum’s closest bus stops Visitors who prefer to stay on foot might explore Stamford Road, which intersects Armenian Street and is accessible from the city’s subway services to City Hall.
