Tjong A Fie's Mansion, Medan
(4.1/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of Tjong A Fie's Mansion to get a sense of the hybrid Chinese-European architectural style typical of Peranakan Cina--ethnic Chinese who emigrated to the Malay peninsula. Completed in 1900, the mansion belonged to the eponymous Chinese magnate who came to own much of the land in Medan through his plantations. A guide provides a basic overview of each room, as well as some background on the family and the legacy of Tjong A Fie. If the tour seems to be over too quickly, ask to continue looking around, and you can wander through the elegantly decorated rooms at your leisure. Put Tjong A Fie's Mansion into our Medan trip itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Medan.

  • Entrance fee is 35,000 rupiah and high forehead, very beautiful. While as the home of Chinese old furnished in clean, excellent location there is. Seeing there really good furniture and furnishings as well as the building.

  • One of very few great historic attraction in Medan. Guides are very well informed and knowledgeable to guide you through the mansion. I would suggest anyone visting Medan visit here. Very relaxing and sound place where you could not really find such place like here in Medan.
  • One of the Tourist attraction in Medan, Medan doesn't have many good Museum. But You mustn't miss this one. It shows you the Mixed Architecture of many cultures like Malay, Victorian, Chinese(main), English, etc.. Tickets is not too expensive but It worth! *The other lacking things here is that the Museum is not well-maintained from the owner and Local Government.
  • There are many good exhibits. Guide is very eager to share and speaks reasonable english. Beware of mosquitoes, this is a problem everywhere in the city (or even country).
  • Must visit museum to Medan, basically is not a museum but a traditional home transformed into museum. So feel like going back to Medan in early 1900s,
  • Great Influential Chinese's mansion. A must see when wandering around Medan.
