We'd bet you might not know some of these even existed!
Museums are a great place to learn new things. They're some of the top places to visit when you travel to a country for the first time. They can also show locals a fascinating side of their country they don't really know. We tend to have the impression of museums being old, serious, and maybe even boring. That may be true for some, but not all museums. Certainly not these five museums in Singapore. Buckle up for a learning journey that gets you geeking out over toys, antiques, and more!
5. The Intan
If you love the Peranakan Museum, you’ll love this more intimate immersion into the vibrant culture. The Intan is located in owner Alvin Yapp’s home, which now has become an independent cultural and social space with a bunch of awards to its name. It showcases Yapp’s own diverse collection of Peranakan furniture and antique pieces, including beautiful tiffin carriers, enamel spittoons, and the intan itself (rose-cut diamonds). To make it even more memorable, complete your tour by having the award-winning traditional Peranakan Tea Appreciation.
