Arguably the most comprehensive Peranakan Museum that I have visited. there is a great extent of displays and artefacts and being in a actual dwelling itself makes the museum even more incredible. they have tried to preserve everything as original as possible from the decorations, paintings, doors.. definitely worth a visit, take the guided tour as you will learn more about the history than just viewing through the displays.
Amazing, a must visit in Penang. Have to follow one of the guides to fully appreciate the place. Our guide, Stanley, was incredibly warm and funny. Amazing how just one house can tell you a lot about the history of Penang. The detail on the 19th century carvings were amazing.
A place to visit even if you are not a history buff. They have guided tours if you are not part of a tour group. It was interesting to catch a glimpse into the lives of the (crazy) rich Peranakans of the past. So much details to admire up close, and unlike some museums, they have not restrictions on photography. 20RM entrance fee is certainly value-for-money!
Very well preserved place and worth to visit and I can tell you it is a must if you visit Georgetown. I joined 13:00 English guided tour, except me all visitors were Malaysians. Even if there are many foreign tourists, they did their way but I recommend you to join the tour. Very informative and helpful to understand the history in here. Our guide was Rickey and has sens of humor. He answered all the questions that we made with all details and lead us very friendly. Mansion has 3 parts, temple, house and jewelry museum. You can also taste local tea(8 RM), and also can buy some jewelries too. Splendid place.
A well management and maintained mansion. It is good to bring our kids to visit here to learn more about our Peranakan. To me, it was such a rich family. There is tourguide to explain the family history and show u around.
