I had a few minutes to spare and so popped in. I turned down the tour which was probably a mistake as there's very little in the way of labelling or explanation as to what things are.

The English language tour was very informative and entertaining. We did find it funny that they are selling off the heirlooms in the backroom.

Baba Stanley Teoh, our tour guide gave an excellent, educational, and fun tour around the house. A lot of insight into of 1900s Malaysian culture and history. Countless marvelous antiques around the house. Great experience and totally recommended.

A delightful home full of Chinese and Indian furnishings. There are many displays to see that you could spend a couple of hours reviewing.

We went on our own and were given an English "guidebook" that was helpful for our "walking tour" through this incredible mansion. "Opulent" hardly describes it; yet the "Baba Nyonya" (Peranakan) combination of Chinese, Malay and English/European cultures in the architecture, ornate furniture, and incredible...More

I'm not sure I'm expert enough to describe the importance of the architecture. Perhaps, it's the unique blending of faux Chinese and Malaysia styles that rendered the entire Peranakan culture that much interesting. First... More

Yup! They do have English/Chinese tour guides. The guides use simple English to describe about the lifestyle of the Peranakans who lived in the mansion, so your kids will be able to understand the tour as well.
