Few new cultures are as distinctive and rich as that of the Peranakan (Straits Chinese) race. A reproduction of a Peranakan house of the early 20th century, the Peranakan Museum gives you a brief insight into its culture. Chinese, Malay and, to a lesser extent, European influences are evident in the clothes, architecture and lavish furnishings, highlighting the affluent lifestyle of the Peranakans. A collection of 17th-century Ching dynasty porcelain and intricate beaded embroidery are fine examples of the heritage of this unique culture.
