The Peranakan Museum houses the world's finest and most comprehensive collection of Peranakan artefacts, representing a unique cultural tradition – fusing ethnic Chinese, Malay and Indian elements – indigenous to Singapore and Southeast Asia. Its rich material legacy and heritage are enhanced by state-of-the-art display technology, and interactive educational exhibits for children.

Aspects of Peranakan life from cradle to grave are explored in ten permanent galleries, with highlights including the elaborate 12-day Peranakan wedding, prominent Peranakans in Singapore's history, as well as Peranakan food and feasting. Visitors are also provided a glimpse of how modern-day Peranakans have evolved with their culture.

The museum is housed in the former Tao Nan School campus, a National Monument. The building, completed in 1912, housed the first modern Hokkien school to be founded in the Straits Settlements. It features a neoclassical design inspired by the French Renaissance.
