From the outside it looks like any other historical building. When you go inside you see how large this place is. It goes on and on, room after room. All the period furniture is still there. The house is still inhabited by desendents of the original family and they are very proud of there heritage.

You can learn about history of Medan, especially history of chinese people in Medan by visiting this place. Located in the main road of Medan you won't miss this place and this is "the must see" place if you go to Medan

Tjong A Fie's Mansion was worth a visit. There we should pay an entrance fee about 35.000 rupiahs including a guide to explain everything inside the Mansion. It was an old Chinese style mansion.

To me, there wasn't much to view at this mansion. A two-storey old building and not so special in its architecture. Anyway, it has its historical story and you need to pay entry fees to view the interior.

Very detailed explanation from a young guide. Many of the rooms in this old mansion are open for viewing by the public. Visitors are forbidden to use flash or take pictures in certain private areas. Entrance fee is 35000Rp but worth it.

Visited once and nothing much inside there. Place is just front of Tiptop Restaurant. Open daily and need to pay entrance fees of Rp 35,000 per person and they will provide guide to explain about the place (subject to availability of the guide). Ground floor is ok, you may see more things. However, for 1st floor most is just empty... More
