The Pinang Peranakan Mansion is situated 29, Church Street, Georgetown. The mansion is a paid homage to the Peranakans, also known as the Babas and Nyonyas, who was a prominent community of acculturated Chinese which is quite unique to this part of the world, especially in the Straits Settlements (Penang, Malacca and Singapore) .At the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, the typical home of a rich Baba of a century ago is recreated to offer a glimpse of their lavish lifestyle and of their many customs and traditions. With over 1,000 pieces of antiques and collectibles of the era on display, this Baba-Nyonya museum is also housed in one of Penang’s heritage mansion of extensive design and architecture. Built at the end of the 19th century by one of local history’s famous personalities, the ‘Hai Kee Chan’ or Sea Remembrance Store which has once served as the residence and office of Kapitan Cina Chung Keng Kwee. Though not a Baba himself, his Chinese courtyard house was much like a typical large Baba home of eclectic style, incorporating Chinese carved-wood panels and English floor tiles and Scottish ironworks. Having survived the many decades of neglect and decay, the mansion has now been restored to its former glory of a stately home as a museum for tourist and the locals.
