Tjong A Fie's Mansion, Medan

4.2
#1 of 19 in Museums in Sumatra
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • This place was just a few minutes walks away from our Hotel Kesawan. It was a really nice experience visited this place especially when you really can see people migrants and we really could tell where those people come from or what is there really pure in the blood. Actually we are all mixed...in a way. But the most important things is, when we travel or migrate to a place, we really treat or consider ourselves as the local. And the only way is that do good for the local and make our root go deep. This is the feeling that this Manson gave me.
  • Nice museum, huge place for old house. I'm very happy with the guide, know history very well. Very informative. Nice people..
