Tjong A Fie Mansion will bring you and your family back to the nostalgic era of Baba and Nyonya complete with history and tradition. You can enjoy the beauty of ancient Chinese architecture combined with the feel of European-style architecture and Malay. Built by a major Chinese legendary, Tjong A Fie.

Well preserved house showing what life was like for the really rich back in the day. A little pricy compared to other sites in the area (35,000 Rp), but definitely worth it if you like history, architecture or interior design. Part of the house is cordoned off because the descendants still live there!

An interesting place to visit. I learned about how the Chinese became the dominant economic force and their determination to holdon to the hokkien dialect which is still widely spoken in this city. The pictures are what made the most impression.

Ok if you like Medan dutch colonial era nostalgia or if you want to see a typical chinese mansion. The mansion is not far from another famous nostalgic restaurant called Tip-Top. So you cn eat there and visit this place.

A must visit while in Medan. The building interior was so beautiful. Not only for a sightseeing purposes, this guided tour will enrich the visitors with the knowledge of local history, especially Tjong A Fie, a philanthropist who was one of the Chinese richest merchant who reside in Medan. .

Interesting building from old times. Best attraction in town! Entrance fee is IDR35,000 but you get a guide with it who speaks very good English

very well preserved. 35000 rupiah entrance fee during this time, including guide. a very nice experience I must say. the guide was really helpful and explain everything about the history and Tjong A Fie's biography and good in answering questions too. too bad there's no place to eat inside, as this also is actually a private house.
