    " It’s a pretty small museum with exhibits that is awesome. Three levels on every nitty gritty things of the Paranakan Culture, this is indeed one of the most comprehensive collection of Paranakan Art you can ever find.

    The Paranakan culture is one that is colourful and extremely exquisite and vibrant. The everyday items such as their clothing (Kebaya) are painful stitched with flowers and bird motifs while their wedding gifts are extravagantly cladded in gold and complicated sculptures.

    In this humble building, you can also find a few pretty interesting details that intrigues us. While you enter the gate to the premises you can find a small cat statue at the base of the first column facing the entrance. This is the residential paranakan cat that was kept in memory. Looking up on your left a lady was looking out from the second level corridor watching your every move with a hint of shyness and laughter..."

      With the latest TV drama on Channel 8, I'm sure there'll be an increase of interest among Singaporeans to want to learn more about the Peranakan culture. If you still do not know about it, there's a Peranakan Museum in Singapore!

      I visited the museum awhile back and I'm impressed with the collection and details that the curators present at the museum. There's a total of 10 galleries housed within the 3-storey building.

      You can learn about the origin, the 12-day wedding, the nonya, their religion and their life in public. With the world’s finest and most comprehensive collection of Peranakan artefacts, you'll sure be spending hours in there exploring and experiencing the Peranakan way of living.

      If you're glued to the television set daily watching the drama show, you might want to go check out the museum too. I would recommend joining a guided tour if there's any. This is the best way to learn more about museum.
