The Intan

> With a deep love for all things Peranakan, owner, collector, and 7th generation Peranakan, Alvin Yapp, has turned his passion into a haven for this fascinating and ever-adapting culture. Over the past 20 years, his Peranakan antique collection has evolved into both a personal and community focused vision of the Peranakan culture. Take a memorable journey into the history, traditions & lifestyle of the Peranakans!

The Intan prides itself in reconciling the beauty of the past into a modern home setting. It aspires to find creative ways of yielding otherwise purely decorative and beautiful artefacts into a new lease of life. Winner of Best Overall Experience in the inaugural Museum Roundtable Award 2011, The Intan promises each visitor insights to the bygone chapters of the Peranakan Culture.
