    Charming if a little dull museum offering some insights into the life and culture of the peranakans, of which only the food seems to have really remained to this day.

    If you are planning to go to more than 1 museum, consider getting a 3 day pass for about $20 which will get you access to all 5 city museums.

    Explains history of the Straits-born Chinese. Parking may be tricky. Best to take the MRT or bus.

    A great starting point in understanding Singapore's unique blend of Chinese, Malay & South Asian culture. Now I understand what 'Peranakan' means. A must see.

    This is a somewhat interactive museum, and not too big, could be good for kids over 7ish. You can collect neat stamp impressions all over -just bring some paper.

    This museum explores the culture of the Peranakan (descendants of 17th-century Chinese and Indian immigrants who married local Malays). Inside, find ceremonial jewelry and nyonya porcelain vases.

    Spend more than $200 at the shop and you can apply for a Banyan Tree card, which entitles you to discounts / deals at their other shops and lifestyle outlets.
