Fodor's Review

Formerly the Tao Nan School, built in 1910, this grand colonial building now houses the first museum in Southeast Asia devoted to the story of the Peranakans, the descendants of 17th-century Chinese and Indian immigrants who married local Malays. Its ten galleries display artwork, jewelery, furniture, and clothing from members of the community.
