Come and visit a life-size Peranaka house at Suntec City North Atrium.

Get to see traditional Peranakan chairs, tea set, painting and scrolls in "Thia Besar". It means a big hall where the Straits-born Chinese known as the Peranakans used to receive their guests and relatives.



Singapore being a bustling port in the early 19th century attracted many foreigners coming to this island to trade and work. Some Chinese immigrants settled and then married local women. Their descendants are called Peranakan Nyonya and Baba. Peranakan Culture is a part of the nation's heritage.

In this exhibit, you could find a bed of Peranakan chamber, beaded slippers and jewellery worn by the Nyonyas.



It is amazing to see young children create such replicas! These children took many hours in creating these pieces and they learnt to work in a team too. It is a learning journey for each kid.



Visitors can also participate in Peranakan craft activities such as designing tiles and beading coasters. Fancy dressing up in traditional Peranakan apparels? You can have your photos taken at the photo booth for a keepsake.



Peranakan apparel and ware are on sale in aid of charity. All proceeds will go to the school charity beneficiary; The Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) .

Peranakan delicacies from the famous eatery Kim Choo are available for purchase. Try delicious Nyonya Dumpling, Lemper Udang, Peranakan Kueh Kueh, and more.



This exhibition is part of Peranakan ProjectLearning by Cambridge Pre-school . This showcase will be ongoing until 2 October.

Let's visit with your family and friends in appreciating Peranakan culture.
