Pinang Peranakan Mansion, Penang Hill Reviews
Took the free tour which was really good, it does cost to enter though. It honestly might even be worth doing the tour twice to experience the with different tour guides as they lead quite different style tours and focus on slightly different information from each other. All the heritage and riches were very interesting to see, there was definitely more to see than I expected. Also there is an antiques shop as the owner is always aquiring new antiques to replace the ones in the house with nicer ones, and sell off the others. About 20% of what is in the house is original, but the rest are genuine antiques from the era that would have been there, but have been bought from many families.
Very beautiful and glamorous (yet not tacky!) building showing insight into lives of Nyonya people in the old times. Would like a bit more description on the signs though and suspect many of the decorations were added in only during renovation and not part of the original design. Nevertheless, worth a visit
Worth a visit. The house itself is not as aesthetically pleasing as the blue mansion, but it's crammed (over)full with furniture and art, some of it worth seeing, and you can wander around freely, with small guided groups constantly making their way through the property too, so you can dip in and out of their spiel.
It was a great experience, our guide « Stanley » had a great and funny way of delivering his knowledge about the mansion. But even just roaming around the house is worth it. Well restored mansion and very rich collection of everything pernakan.
Sorry but this is one of the most boring "museums" in the world. Also, i don't know if the guide was just bad or if theres simply not much to tell about this place and exhibition items. But paying +20RM entrance fee to literally get to look at countless pairs of old shoes is way too unexciting and i am not masochist enough to find anything good to mention about this place.
