Accessibility, amenities, and museum navigation

Getting to the museum 

The Peranakan Museum is located at 39 Armenian Street. Visit our Plan Your Visit page for more information on getting to the museum. 

Bus drop-off points 

We recommend for 40-seater buses to drop off visitors at the dedicated drop-off point beside The Bible House along Coleman Street. 20-seater buses, wheelchair transports, and other smaller vehicles can turn into Loke Yew Street and drop off visitors outside the museum. 
Visitors are encouraged to bring umbrellas or ponchos as there is no shelter from the drop-off points to the museum entrance.  


Entrances and ramps 

There is a short flight of steps leading up to the museum entrance. The entrance has automatic doors. Visitors with mobility considerations should use the ramp beside the stairs to access the museum.
