How to donate

Donate an Object to the Peranakan Museum

The Peranakan Museum appreciates gifts of art and objects. All donations offered are evaluated by our curatorial staff to ensure quality, authenticity, and significance for the National Collection. The donation is then put before an Acquisition Committee and NHB Management for approval. In addition, the donor must obtain a valuation by a competent third party.

Our curators will guide you through the stages of vetting, assessment, and valuation. These steps are necessary to maintain the highest standards in our National Collection. Tax deduction for double the value of the donated object(s) is granted.

Adopt an Object

Our object adoption programme offers the opportunity to make a special connection with works in the collection. Your contribution can be acknowledged on the label of a favourite object in the galleries.
