Add a Point to the Map

Rumah Bebe is a place that is hard to define. If it’s one thing, then it’s Peranakan. Part Peranakan fashion store, part Peranakan culture school and part Peranakan museum, Rumah Bebe is housed in a beautifully decorated shop house with old handcrafted gold-gilded wooden screens, nicely decorated doors and colourful glazed tiles. The shop house was built in 1928 and the interior has retained the layout of a typical Peranakan house with features like a reception hall, inner hall, kitchen and a bridal chamber.

The fashion store sells Peranakan clothes and the Peranakan's signature beaded shoes. The school offers classes on aspects of the Peranakan culture, including a cooking course on real Nyonya cuisine. Added to this is the museum located on the second level, unfortunately closed until further notice.

There are a variety of antique embroideries, beadworks, batik-textiles, jewellery and porcelain on sale here if you want to bring home a Peranakan souvenir.
