When there during Imlek (Chinese New Year) and it's close. But from the outside view, it looks so beautiful. Besides, it's strategically located near Kesawan Square.

One of my favorite places in Medan, and across the street from my favorite restaurant in Medan–Tip Top–, Tjong A Fie's Mansion is a great slice of history of Medan. The fact that the place has been preserved–hundred-year-old wall paintings still adorn its walls–is a true testament to its importance. I always enjoy taking volunteers and tourists there.

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. Here, we can learn about a Chinese immigrant that came to Medan then become a successful tycoon during his era and why Medan citizen loved him... More
