This museum is about a person who came from China, who experienced hardships in his early life then became a very rich and successful chinese clan in Medan. Dont expect more. The ticket is quite expensive, Rp 30.000 ($3). When I was there, the quide was not so helpful, she failed to provide adequate information about this museum.

My friend recommended me to visit this museum when I was in Medan. I was being skeptical at first, since it's only an old house so what's so special about it? But as soon as I stepped into the front yard and saw the architecture of this house, I love it. It's a mix Malay-Chinese style house with some European... More

Although is a little bit pricey to get into the museum, but you still can get free guide who will explain to you. And I think it's pricey cause they have to clean and do maintaining the old house which... More

Well preserved mansion that combines Chinese, Indian and European architecture with Indonesian one. Impressive collection of photographs and other artifacts. The painted ceiling was very impressive. Take the tour (no extra charge) - our guide was a very knowledgable finance student with excellent English. The entrance fee is quite expensive with 35,000 per person.
