Description:

'Peranakan' is a Malay word meaning 'child of' and refers to people of mixed ethnic origins. With Southeast Asia being a crossroads of trade throughout history, many foreign traders married local women and it is their children who are the Peranakans. The Peranakan Museum mainly focuses on the Peranakan Chinese (the descendents of Chinese traders who settled in Malacca) and showcases their fascinating cultural heritage through the most comprehensive collection of Peranakan artefacts in the world.
