The Peranakan Museum is relatively new when compared to its counterparts. I visited it a few years ago when it was newly opened and it was like being introduced to a whole new culture, so distinctively Chinese yet so uniquely Peranakan.
Maybe because it’s name matches it’s exhibits, when I first explored it, it was like being immersed in a totally different world, having to understand their language from scratch, having to understand their customs and ceremonies and stereotypes… it was such an experience it gave me a new perspective on ‘other’ races in Singapore!

It left an indelible mark in my mind that had me coming back again this year, but the disappointing thing is that nothing has changed. Surely the Museum could have reinvented itself, added in more exhibits or changed the style of the exhibits… but no, and now it has turned stale.
