    Guide to Peranakan Museum
    The Peranakan, also known as Straits Chinese, were the early Chinese immigrants to Indonesia during the 15th and 16th centuries who eventually settled in Malaysia and Singapore. The Peranakan culture, a unique hybrid culture, is still a component of Singapore’s living heritage.
