This notable museum originated by the story of Baba Nyonya at the beginning of the 16th century where merchants and entrepreneurs were lured to Melaka’s shores. Chinese traders who arrived to escape Manchu rule marry local Malay women and the descendants of these marriages were known as Peranakan or ‘Straits-born Chinese’. Located at No. 48-50 along Jalan Tun Cheng Lock in Melaka, the Baba-Nyonya Heritage Museum is a collection of three restored houses arranged to look like a typical 19th-century Baba-Nyonya residence. Built in 1896, these townhouses were transformed into a traditional Peranakan museum featuring hand-painted tiles, elaborately carved teakwood outer swing doors and a sturdier internal door which provides extra security. This museum exhibits the history of Peranakan and their origin in Melaka. Lies near Jonker Street, the museum can be easily located by the Greco-Roman columns, two red lanterns, one bearing a household name and the other messages of good luck.
