BABA AND NYONYA HERITAGE MUSEUM

The Baba & Nyonya House Museum is located in Melaka, a World UNESCO Site. The house is a perfect combination of three terrace lots that were attained by the Chan family in 1861. Four generations have lived in the house before it was officially opened as a museum in March 1985. The name of the museum is derived from the unique term Baba, an honorific manner when you are addressing a Straits-born gentleman and Nyonya which addresses a Straits-born lady.
