Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum (Malacca)

Located along Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock which is next to Jonker Street, Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum provides a glimpse into the culture of Peranakans - Baba (Straits-born gentleman) and Nyonya (Straits-born lady) in the early 20th-century Malaya. The tour is conducted around the house which is a combination of three terrace lots that were acquired by the Chan family in 1861.
