Quite hard to find but worth the hunt. Very elaborately decorated outside and inside but also has very good exhibition explaining the history of the clan house and showing how it is used today. Also photos of the family, past and present.

If you miss this place, it's ok as its not worth to go there. The entrance fee was not worth the money & we spent only 10 mins there.

Well organized & lots to take in. Give yourself enough time to soak it all in, do not rush through it.

Complete surprise after you've walked down a dingy alleyway. The vivid colors and fantastical decoration are eye-popping. Inside there are fairly extensive displays and descriptions. I didn't have enough time to fully explore, but wish I had.

Even after a thousand temples in China, this was a great change. I really enjoyed this place. It's free and close to Lebuh Chulia and/or the clan jetties.
