4/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • 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).
  • Great Influential Chinese's mansion. A must see when wandering around Medan.
  • One place to visit when in Medan. Period. Great vibe and a lot of history about Medan itself.
  • When I was there with a friend, there was no such promised guided tour for us. They asked us just to join the already running tour instead, but the guide seems prefered to ignore us and just focused on the foreign tourists. We, the local tourists, were discriminated :(
