I must say that the collection of the baba Nyonya stuff are quite comprehensive and impressive. The staff are quite well trained too. The lifestyle of the baba Nyonya was well explained in a humorous manner. We had a good laugh when the guide told us that the rooms are all equipped with "attached bathroom" even in those good old...

The museum is nothing special. It's quite large but it's just another museum with Chinese household items on display. The entrance fee is RM 25 which includes a guide.

This mansion is highly decorated with extremely ornate furniture, fittings and clothes of the era. I took a guided tour of the jewellery exhibition and enjoyed that over the mansion. Great for lovers of all things bling.

How the rich (Pinang Chinese) used to live until less than 100 years ago. No effort or money was spared to build and furnish this combination Art Nouveau and traditional Chinese residence. A renovation of great beauty.

This is a great peranakan mansion in central Penang. The entry fee includes a tour and the guides were personable, friendly and informative. Our tour consisted of just 2 people, which was great. It can get very busy in the afternoons, but it was still possible to have quiet moments and to take photos with no one else in them.... More

Come and visit this beautiful old mansion and step back in time. It is very well set out and creates a feeling of yester year at its peak.

Some room is decorated with Chinese furniture and... More

Interesting tour and artifacts. The rooms have been dressed well to show the different eras that have been lived in. Our guide had more than enough information. some of the rooms were almost too cold but as we were moving through that was probably a good thing. Definietely worthwhile.
