The Intan is a private home museum that houses one of Singapore’s most impressive collections of Peranakan (a group descended from Chinese settlers) artifacts. Owner Alvin Yapp has spent over 30 years collecting 1,500 treasures of this remarkable culture, most notably the kasot manek (ornate beaded slippers worn by Peranakan women) and enamel tiffin carriers hand-painted in delicate floral patterns. Yapp's post-war home is a labor of love, and it shows in the meticulous way that he has arranged every square inch of it.

A tour of The Intan gives visitors a chance to walk back in time and marvel at the spirit of the Peranakans. On arrival at the museum, the first thing that strikes you is how unassuming the exteriors of the house are. It is not until you walk inside that you get to marvel at the astounding collection of antiques that attempts to combine the charm of the past within the contemporary setting. Most of all, you will be hosted by the Owner & Collector, like none other museum experience.

Your experience at The Intan is approximately 1 hour and it includes:
- Tea & home-made Peranakan refreshments
- A brief understanding of the history and culture of the Peranakans
- Learning about the traditional and lavish Peranakan wedding ceremony
- Appreciating the colourful and intricate beadwork & embroidery handmade by the Peranakan women

Scheduled sessions are held every Saturday at 10am. Additional timings are available at 11.30am, 1pm, 2.30pm and 4pm, on request. A maximum number of 20 visitors is allowed per group.
