It's a MUST visit place if you are in Malacca. The collections are awesome and a great way to learn about Baba & Nyonya.

With real family story as backdrop, all the antiques, photos and every corner of the house become much more lively even without a guide. This is much better cultural place to visit than Penang peranakan mansion which is just a show case by antique collector.

Went for a visit on a Friday..I love culture and history so this small museum was perfect for a lazy afternoon stroll. Interesting to look at the old building, furniture and clothes plus the history of the family that lived there.

Thus grand house is a step back in history. It explains the whole Peranakan / Chinese / Malay contribution to the Malay culture and history. A must see.

I took the guided tour and was really impressed with the design of the house and the informative information given. Really worth the visit!

This is definitely worth a visit. This HUGE home of the Chan family, of 3 adjacent buildings, reflect the might and wealth of a Peranakan family. Join the guided tour. You will get so much more out of your visit.

I loved this musuem mostly for the fact that you are allocated your own personal guide, who was fantastically eager about his subject and was in no rush for my tour to finish. The house that the museum is contained in is so well preserved...More
