“Interesting heritage museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

The place gives the younger generation a very good glimpse into the past lives and tradition of Peranakans. The guide in the museum gives a clear explanation of how they lived. An interesting tour!

“Visit it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

It's definitely wort a visit. The house in general is well preserved and it's a good chance to discover something more about the life of locals in the past two centuries. The guided tour is 45 min long and the guide does everything to make your visit more pleasant. Entrance fee is fair.

“Great guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

A fascinating look at the Baba-Nyonya lifestyle. The guide was great - so funny and knowledgable. Would be good to have a little more time to explore - and the tour groups are so large. But still well worth a visit.
