  • Highly recommended. No need to book ahead or be part of an expensive tour. It costs 10 ringgit to get in (around 2 euros) and another 10 for a personal tour. Opt for the tour as you'll learn much more...  more »

  • it looks very small and nothing to see outside, but quite impressive inside with a massive collection of Old day Dynasty like treasure. It is good to follow the free service (English) tour guide.
  • Fantastic.. RM 20 entry fee with free tour guide. Important things is understand baba nyonya culture
  • Truly fascinating collections of Peranakan decorations and artefacts etc. Partly historical, partly set up for the museum purpose, enjoyable nonetheless. The gift shop is forgettable with steep prices on common things. The collections of beaded slippers and accessories however are amazing,
  • Our family would like to extend a gesture of appreciation to Uncle Henry for leading the tour that imparted meaning into the age old Baba Nonya heritage from the living quarters to the museum and kitchen.
  • Great museum with lots of peranakan artefacts. Must visit museum in Penang.
