  • Amazing place to visit, unfortunately you can't use your camera inside. Actually this is a private museum owned by a family, but every collection is well maintained. You can find some rooms that shows dresses, kitchen with cooking equipments, dining room with dining sets, musical instruments,and everything in peranakan (Chinese - malay) ways. Superb
  • Awesome place! Love how they kept the culture and educate the public. A must while visiting Malacca. Kids will love it!
  • Wonderful place to learn the history of a Chinese five-generation family's culture and the artifacts and decor are amazingly beautiful.
  • Very well preserved with beautiful furnishings and an impressive collection. A free guided tour is organised several times a day. I attended one and found it both entertaining and informative. Good place to visit for culture philes.
