“Bad Service”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We went there with 8 persons and we are only interested on the peranakan and not the jewelry, so just buy the half ticket. After paid, suppose to be a guide to do explaination for us, but we have waited for more than 10minutes still no one to guide us as others visitor who came later than us has entertained by their guide. This is not the worst part, after we voice to the counter, they ask us to join a group of 2 foreign visitors but the guide left and missing after 1st part of explaination when we taking photo.

“house tour comparison”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I am a fan of house tours, and what I most appreciate is interesting architecture and authentic furnishings. We toured two mansions in Georgetown, the Pinang Peranakan Museum and the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. Of the two, we found Pinang Peranakan much the superior experience. The Cheong Fatt Tze is larger and has more extensive grounds, but it is sparsely furnished and landscaped, so as of this writing I would definitely recommend Pinang Peranakan, which is richly furnished with original furniture and artworks of the family who built it.
It is mostly a self-guided tour (another plus) but for a few ringits you can have one of the resident guides give you a private tour. It is well worth it.

“Quite Expensive”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I have to admit that there are lots of things to see in the museum but the ticket is too expensive (RM20) for an adult.
