Traders and migrants, jewellery and multi-coloured cottons, languages and commerce – port cities mix people, merchandise, and ideas.

In a world’s first, Port Cities: Multicultural Emporiums of Asia, 1500 – 1900 by the Asian Civilisations Museum threads the tales of various Asian port cities together to present the stories of people, places and objects, told through pan-Asian networks.

Featuring over 180 objects from eight countries, this special exhibition paints a picture of life through photographs, paintings, fashion, luxury goods, and everyday objects. Disembark at ACM for a view of hybrid cultures, ingenuity, and global trends bred in these cosmopolitan centers.
