I like it that they allowed photography in this museum so we can capture shots of things that we liked.

Interesting house with some great pieces to look at & I liked the fact you could take photo's. However I felt the guide was rushing the tour & could have given us some time to browse. The Baba-Nonya Heritage Museum tour was much better, taking twice the amount of time & they are both the same price (15MYR).

Since I love jewellry and the Straits Chinese Jewelry Musuem was highly regarded by other travellers, I just had to visit. I loved the jewellry and the other exhibits. All visits include a guided tour - usually a good thing, right? Unfortunately, my guide was trying to break the sound barrier in herding my group through the exhibits and out the door. We were not permitted to linger and absorb the beautiful things on display. I felt ripped off. The only reason I didn't give it one star was that the items on display were so beautiful, it would have been a shame to miss seeing them, however briefly.
