The Peranakans, also known as the Babas and Nyonyas, 
was a prominent community of acculturated Chinese unique to this part of the world,
 especially in the Straits Settlements (Penang, Malacca and Singapore).

Adopting selected ways of the local Malays and later, the colonial British, 
the Peranakans had created a unique lifestyle and customs 
which had not only left behind a rich legacy of antiques but its cultural influences 
like the Baba-Nyonya cuisine and language, which are still evident in Penang today.

At the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, the typical home of a rich Baba 
of a century ago is recreated to offer a glimpse of their opulent lifestyle 
and of their many customs and traditions.
