When we went it had been raining heavily throughout the day and many people were using it as a shelter. it made things very crowded and you couldnt really go and look at the carvings and different displays. If you're able to take you're time it has truly beautiful craftsmanship throughout the home.

The Tan Ky House is a small unrestored five generation family home in the old quarters. It was built in the late 1890’s and is laid out to show you what living conditions were like over 200 yrs ago. There is antique furniture set up. The house has a small but very nice courtyard.

Hoi An has flooded many times and the Tan Ky House has kept track of some if it on one wall (See Picture). Hard to believe they came back from the flood in 1963.

We went early evening and it was a little bit busy. We just hung back and it did seem to help. The lighting was very dim. I would suggest going then it is still a bit brighter outside. How the courtyard would let in a lot of light. We spend about 15-20mins wondering around inside.

Don't forget to purchase your ticket before heading to a this stop at the Old Town Booth. The tickets includes 5 entrance fees. You have 24 hours from time of purchase to use them. It cost 120,000VND (around $7.10CAD). There are 21 sightseeing to choose from.

This is an interesting visit to spend a ticket on. A fancy house of an 18th century merchant with its furniture.

Very crowded though, and if you haven’t hired a private guide, you will not learn much.

Ok visit.

We ended up here almost by mistake. We were following a Vietnamese tour group and they came into here. We had an English-speaking guide who told us some fascinating things about the Houma. Water levels in this town exceed up to two more in-depth during the rainy season. There are hooks in the upper story to haul furniture upstairs until the flood waters subside. Intricate carvings and durable materials downstairs. Get a guide if you go through where you will miss all of the interesting bits

visited here last year september,it was bulit by an ethnically Vietnamese family, its design is a mixture of Japanese and Chinese influences.The name “Tan Ky” was used by the second generation Mr. Le Tan Ky.At that time, this house was used to trade agricultural products.this house is built not using a small nail,very unique.the place exhibited artifacts and sailboats,which is the symbol of Hoi An Port.and there is a souvenirs corner inside too.

Came here and used 1 of our 5 Hoi an tickets. It’s a nice well kept ancient house with artefacts and text descriptions on the walls. It’s quite impressive that the family of 7 generations are still living there. You are in and out quite quick

This small but very worth while House is a must to visit during a stay in Hoi An. This house is still kept within the family from I believe 7 generations. The artefacts and furniture are kept in superb condition and reflects how villagers would live in days gone by.

Visit only one old house. Ask ur tour guide to take you to only one as the story they tell inside is very repetitive...

Location makes for some goods pictures.

The building is interesting, and has good signed info in English and Vietnamese. The cross section of the house is good. You can see the flood levels and the mother of pearl carving is lovely. The interior is marred by tourist sales tables and a hard sell to buy zodiac coins. They rush you from taking photos to make the pitch. The home has 3 architectural styles: Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese; you cannot see the third well as it is the family living quarters upstairs. Visit the house but decline the "tour".

This is one of the places included when you buy the pass before entering the old town. It is well worth the stop to see the interior decor whit some of the fine, old furniture.
