A fabulous insight into the history of Ipoh, the Ho Yan Hor Museum is one of the few places in the city that throw light upon its past. On your visit here, look forward to seeing a brilliant display of objects from the bygone era, behind closed doors of a pre-war building. As you start exploring this Ipoh attraction, you will notice the unmissable quantity of teas and items related to teas, like kettles and tea pots. It is said that the Ho family excelled in making herbal teas that soon became their specialty. Depicting this fact, it’s the cardboard cutout of Mr. Ho, the founder of this museum at the entrance of this quaint, easy-to-miss museum. The ground floor also has a lovely tea bar that you can sip tea at post your exploration. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Ipoh itinerary 1 day.

Ho Yan Hor Museum Reviews & Ratings
A pleasant and comfortable tour and a good look into the history of Ho Yan Hor and it's founder. The museum was where it's founder spent his childhood, according to my understanding. There was a tea sampling session at the end of the tour with an introduction to their products. Rather eye opening. Free admission and no obligation to purchase would be the best part of the visit. We still bought some HYH herbal tea products from a shop a couple of doors away. Highly recommended.
We stumbled upon this by chance and we went here straightaway after visiting Han Chi Pet Soon next door. You can put your in the waiting list and they will grant you quick access once you finish Han Chi Pet Soo. It is free and they serve you tea. What more could you ask for ? Love the exhibition. So detailed and so Ho Yan Hor is really a role model.
We went as a group of 11 so we had a special group tour but had to wait but only brief 15 minutes wait. If you are in the area I recommend everyone to go and visit because you can see its history presented nicely inside the building spanned over 2 floors with lots of pictures and written descriptions. Well worth of the wait and they don't sell any of the actual products other than souvenirs for collection only. They said that their products are in many pharmacies and department stores so you can get them there.
Great museum with great friendly staff. Free admission for all. Great to learn the history of the tea and the founder. It is lovely how they keep all the old item from the start of the company. After finished the tour, they will serve you with 3 of their signature tea including the oldest recipe. Highly recommended.
A beautiful story of a man and his herbal tea business. For those who appreciate the Malaysian Chinese culture will most likely find it worth the visit. The staircase is rather steep and old, please be careful when using the stairs. There is no toilet here also.
