Peranakan Mansion Penang

At the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, the typical home of a rich Baba of a century ago is recreated to offer a glimpse of their lavish lifestyle, customs and traditions. This courtyard house is now a Baba-Nyonya museum with over 1,000 pieces of antiques and collectibles of the era on display. The heritage mansion which has incorporated Chinese carved-wood panels, English floor tiles and Scottish ironworks in its multi-faceted architecture and design, has now been restored to its former glory after having survived many years of neglect.


The main staircase incorporates the use of both local and imported materials in its construction, handrail with balusters of cast iron, from Glasgow, Scotland. A distinct feature of European influence includes the hollowed out design of fleur-de-lis on the decorative ironwork.


Richly decorated with European-styled teak furniture, Victorian ceramic figures and glass epergnes, affluent Baba households even have a separate western-styled dining room meant for entertaining peers and European guests. The dinner service includes porcelain, glass and silverware, all imported from Europe.


In Straits Eclectic and Chinese homes, the front hall or parlor is typically separated from the rest of the house by an ornately carved wooden screen. Directly facing the main door, this timber divider acts as a ‘ spirit wall’ to prevent evil spirits from entering by obstructing their straight paths. The filigree panels also allow the womenfolk to take a peek at visitors where in more traditional households male guests rarely venture beyond this room.
