Had been checking out where to start in Georgetown, this is a must do in my list. So I dragged the old and young with me to check out this cultural place. The collection of Peranakan-related stuff is comprehensive. I was quite impressed with the presentation, service and the guide's patience with us in explaining in details. Ms Goh was... More

Entry fee includes a guide of the house, which takes about 1 hour. Our guide was really informative with both the history of the house and Penang. The house is a treasure trove. Room after room filled with rare and beautiful objects. After the tour we spent another couple of hours admiring all it had to offer. Loved it!

The mansion was a home for 1st generation of Peranakan people in Penang. All the furnitures were original, as well as all the jewelries and displays. A home guide will be assigned to explain the mansion history. The mansion owner was very, very rich so be prepared to see all kinds of jewelries, crowns, and their rich culture as well.

Our visit to the jewellery exhibition was especially interesting thanks to Happy Singh our guide and the lovely Cynthia at the antique jewellery counter, who spent time talking to us about the provenance of the pieces. She was knowledgable and friendly and we appreciated the time she took with us.

This is a massive house filled with a very big collection of antique furniture, clothing, jewellery. It is a mansion owned by a wealthy Chinese family that immigrated to Penang. It was good to go with the guide to learn about the history and the family. The only thing I would say is that I would have liked him to... More

The tour was very chatty and informative and there is a fair bit of walking including taking off shoes and walking upstairs. If u have difficulty walking just do downstairs. As this was about my kids ancestry it was more exciting for them to see the conditions of their ancestors living and only if they were doing well. Well worth... More

It is an excellent experience to visit the amazing mansion which reflects the harmonious mix of Chinese and Malay cultures. Miss Woo, the tour guide, gave us detailed and interesting information about the mansion. She ensured that we would not miss out any details and patiently answered every question we would ask during the tour. Many thanks to Miss Woo.
