Owner description: The Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum is located in Melaka, a world UNESCO Site. The house is a combination of three terrace lots that were acquired by the Chan family in 1861. Four generations lived in the house before it was opened as a museum in March 1985. Visiting hours from 10.00am to 4.30pm every day.

This was an excellent activity for Melaka. 12 ringgit gets you a guided tour of the home (there's only one price, so you may as well go on the tour). Our guide was charming and entertaining and the house was interesting.

Very good authentic museum to learn a rich background of baba and nonya. House owner is really a nonya background therefore, the museum is assisted with a tour guide. A very comprehensive tour guide. There's a certain time intervals of around 45 min if I'm not wrong as you need to go with the tour in order to enter the museum.

We would highly recommend the tour of the Baba Noneya museum. Each room - its purpose, history and artefacts is described in detail as you are walked through by your guide. Shirley, our guide, had a lovely wit and charm as she described the history and workings of the old Chinese house.

To my surprise this museum had a tour guide- Ms. Sheirley. Every piece in this place is indeed very priceless. There were tags with side items with very precise information about its piece. The tour guide not only explained about the piece but the traditions, customs & she also had a nice sense of humor. Being pert Peranakan, i've only gained knowledge about the customs and traditions, it also made me feel proud. To sum it all up. The one hour spend here was time a time travel to past due to the layout. A one of a kind museum thats outstanding.
