Peranakan Museum

From March 19th to May 19th, Seoul's National Museum of Korea will display an impressive array of Peranakan art, a temporary export from Singapore's Peranakan Museum. Drawn from Peranakan culture of the 19th and 20th century, the artifacts and treasures on display will be accompanied by traditional cuisine and demonstrations of fashion.

An intricately beaded table cloth, an ornate wedding bed, and blingtastic gold jewelry are among the precious artefacts heading to Korea next month as part of a travelling exhibition of Peranakan art and culture from Singapore.


Running from March 19 to May 19 at Seoul’s National Museum of Korea, the show, titled “The Peranakan World: Cross-Cultural Art of Singapore and the Straits,” will feature 230 artefacts on loan from Singapore’s Peranakan Museum and private collectors. These range from costumes and jewelry to ceramics and portraits.
