  • FYI, this muzium had closed and now being renovated and later will Chinese Baba restaurant and target to open somewhere in April'21
  • Wonderful! So much more than jewellery (although that exhibit in itself is breathtaking). You get to learn about the Baba Nyonya household, customs, marriage rites, ways of dress, and home life, including the different expectations for men and women in those days. Passionate and very knowledgable tour from Linda (in Cantonese), ever patient with my questions and she made it so fun. Highly recommend.
