Menu Option 1 : The Intan Peranakan Tea Experience
$60/ $50/$30 (Adult/Youth 13yo- 17yo/Child 3yo – 12yo)
The Intan is a private home museum that houses one of Singapore’s most impressive collection of Peranakan (a group descended from Chinese settlers) artifacts. Owner Alvin Yapp has spent over 30 years collecting 1,500 treasures of this remarkable culture, most notably the kasot manek (ornate beaded slippers worn by Peranakan women) and enamel tiffin carriers hand-painted in delicate floral patterns. Alvin’s post-war home is a labor of love, and it shows in the meticulous way that he has arranged every square inch of it.
A visit to The Intan gives visitors a chance to walk back in time and marvel at the spirit of the Peranakans. On arrival at the museum, the first thing that strikes you is how unassuming the exterior of the house is. It is not until you walk inside that you get to marvel at the astounding collection of antiques that attempts to combine the charm of the past within a contemporary setting. Most of all, you will be hosted by the Owner & Collector, who will explain and provide access to some of his most private and precious collections.

– Tea & home-made Peranakan refreshments
