The Peranakan Museum at 39 Armenian Street, Singapore 179941, also known as the Former Tao Nan School, is a museum specializing in Peranakan culture. It is a sister museum to the Asian Civilisations Museum. The building was designed by the Municipal Engineer's Office and constructed between 1910 and 1912, and occupied by the Tao Nan School which was the first modern Hokkien school established in the Straits Settlements on 18 November 1906. The school was also the first Chinese-medium school to admit students who were not Hokkien. The building was severely damaged during World War II and repaired in 1945. In 1982, the school moved to new premises in Marine Parade. The building housed the Asian Civilisations Museum from 1997, and subsequently the Peranakan Museum from 25 April 2008. It was gazetted as a national monument on 27 February 1998.
