Pinang Peranakan Mansion - Penang


The Pinang Peranakan Mansion was originally the home of Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee.



The building was refurnished and turned into a “Baba Nyonya” Museum to showcase the lifestyle and culture of the eclectic Chinese Straits Settlement in Penang called the Peranakan. The gentlemen were known as “Baba” and the ladies as “Nyonya”.



The mansion was the locations for the filming of the Little Nyonya, a 34 episode drama series by Singapore MediaCrop TV Channel 8.
