Katong Antique House

The 25 year-old Katong Antique House is a veritable museum, filled with every type of traditional Peranakan costumes, crockery and furniture. Meet Mr. Peter Wee, a fourth generation Baba Peranakan, who will regale you with stories of his heritage. A little gallery sits on the top floor of the two-storey shophouse, which Mr. Wee inherited from his maternal grandfather, Mr. Tan Cheng Kee. Marvel at the intricately woven kasut manek or beaded slippers, charming furniture and wedding costumes.
