Admire the eclectic and opulent artifacts the family collected from across the globe, and glimpse the richness of Peranakan culture in the architecture's combining of Chinese, Malay, and colonial British influences. Take a guided tour to learn about the dynastic family and the way their individual tastes shaped the house and its present-day appearance.
