Peranakan Museum Reviews
以前から気になっていたところで、今回行ってみました。地下鉄City Hall駅から徒歩圏内ですので移動は楽でした。展示物も充実しており、プラナカンの歴史と文化が良く理解できました。空調も効いていてゆっくり見て回れます。 more »Where I had been worried about before, I went to this time. The location is very close to the City Hall. The exhibits are also substantial, and I can understand the history and culture of Peranakan well. The air conditioning is also working and you can look around slowly.
The term "Peranakan" is used in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore to refer to persons born in these countries of mixed local and foreign ancestry. “Foreign” could be Arab, Chinese, Dutch, Indian, etc.... more »
A most interesting museum. Displays and exhibits are well captioned and the narratives are well thought through. The history of the Peranakan communities is a fascinating one and brought to life here. I'm not Chinese but European, but I still found it fascinating. Highly recommended.
Great museum!!! A bit more personal than your average museum visit. We did the tour with a volunteer guide and had plenty of luck with him. He had many great personal and family stories to tell and even some of the items on display were on loan from them. There are also temporary exhibitions, for us they most definitely were worth our time. In all a great 3 hours of quality time. I recommend visiting it during lunch so you avoid the strong mid afternoon Singapore sun.
