Essential Information

'Peranakan' refers to the descendants of the Chinese people who immigrated to the Indonesian archipelago (Peninsular Malaysia) and British Malaya (Singapore). Some historians say that the Peranakan culture is dying out; whether this is true is subject to debate. The Peranakan Museum (a sister institution of the Asian Civilizations Museum) has successfully preserved clothing, jewelry, and other cultural artifacts of the Straits Chinese. You can get in for free on Fridays, from 7pm to 9pm.
