The Peranakan Gallery at Changi Airport’s new Terminal 4 (T4), made possible through the generous inkind sponsorship by the Changi Airport Group (CAG), opened its doors to transit travelers on Tuesday, 31 October 2017. Complementing the Peranakan Museum, which explores the culture of Peranakan communities in Southeast Asia, the Peranakan Gallery at T4 examines how Peranakan culture has inspired contemporary living and design. The gallery also highlights how the Peranakans of Southeast Asia, known for their hybrid style, customs, cuisine, language and prolific use of colours, have added vibrancy to Singapore’s societal fabric.
