Incredibly, beautiful experience. The owner, Alvin was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely personable. He made each guest feel welcome and valued. His personal collection is impressive and extensive. The home museum is well kept and extremely clean. This is a must visit when visiting Singapore!
Alvin has created a welcoming and curated museum experience about Peranakan history. There’s a bespoke and extensive collection of artefacts and it’s definitely a place I’d recommend whether you’re visiting or residing in Singapore.
This is a must see if you are in Singapore. So much history and culture. It's walking back in time and a very entertaining host, Alvin. Love it.
Peranakan Houses was the enclave of Peranakan back in the early 20th century. It is a stylish and colourful neighbourhood that captures a mini attraction for tourists. Every house has different colours and sophisticated architecture. The spot has become famous for photo shoots, and many people come here to take their wedding photos. Visitors can find many beautiful and bright old-style Chinese houses in Peranakan. The houses are lovely and colourful to view, and it is a perfect and beautiful place to take a sharp picture or selfie. Iconic colourful Katong houses are a must-visit for tourists looking to see the old houses in Singapore.
PERANAKAN HOUSES REVIEWS
As a lover of places with historical backgrounds, these Peranakan Houses are an interesting place to visit and observe how the influence of colonialization, population migration, efforts to form communities, and provide community identity through the design of the house and the choice of colors used, as well as the motif of the tiles chosen. Singapore not only offers shopping tours but also regularity and comfort for pedestrians which of course I can't get to the fullest in the city where I live.
This neighbourhood is amazing. honestly, if you'd like to take pics like what insta showed, you need to cross over the street. beside that, you can find giant near this tourist spot then there is nearest bus stop also if you'd like to go to other places.
It was a nice experience to be able to see a history-rich neighborhood of Peranakan houses and yet still livable.

EURASIAN HERITAGE GALLERY REVIEWS
There is a lovely Eurasian restaurant onsite serving traditional dishes. The gallery was free to enter and is well laid out and has a wealth of very interesting historical artifacts a well as people from the past and today who are Eurasian. We received a superb souvenir book packed with photos and a coaster. Well worth the time to explore, learn and eat, and get to understand the contribution Eurasian's had and are having in Singapore
I learnt a lot about Eurasians and enjoyed my visit there very much. The exhibits were insightful and I recommend it as a "must visit".
Great Eurasian food and life music brought me down memory lane for a few hours.... enjoyed the atmosphere and music!
