Excellent examples of Chinese-Palladian style, these townhouses, built
in 1896, were transformed into a traditional Peranakan museum in later years,
connected by a common covered footway, the museum features hand-painted tiles,
elaborately carved teakwood outer swing doors and a sturdier internal door
which provides extra security. Framed by Greco-Roman columns, two red lanterns,
one bearing a household name and the other messages of good luck, hang on
either side of the entrance.
