The one thing that made a huge impression on me was the very pretty architecture of the museum. Both the external facade and the building within that was once a Chinese school. The building was constructed way back in 1912 and is of the classical colonial tropical style. It would have been wonderful to live in a home like this with natural light flooding into the middle or central hall of the building, and the solid dark wood floors.
Airy spacious corridors. I can imagine the children marching through these corridors towards their classrooms as this was Tao Nan School after all. I wonder how much of the old structure was preserved.
Loved the gorgeous pink wall art.
I love the use of muted complementary pastel shades.
If you have difficulty climbing stairs there are lifts that have been constructed within the building.
Just so pretty. I can’t rave enough about how pretty the internal structure is and once again my photos don’t do the place justice. You just have to come explore for yourself.
That’s really pretty.
It’s one of the prettiest museums… I thought.
So many times when I look at your photos of wonderful places in Singapore, I kick myself for not getting around to seeing them when I lived there. Today, with all the gorgeous photos of the Peranakan museum, I’m kicking myself so much I’m black and blue all over. I really do have to get back to that tiny island some day soon!
I just realized that even though we’re so tiny there is still so much more for me to explore. And then after that there’s so much in South Eat Asia that I haven’t seen either.
