  • Small but pretty. You can also get some information about the building.
  • Commercial merchandise and souvenirs place. Not worth a visit...
  • One of the more informative of the historic "places of interest" in Hoi An. The guide was detailed and thorough instead of robotic like those found at some of the other more frequented places. A beautiful house serving as a family shrine with detailed architecture and a rich history. A real downside was the over-the-top push to sell stuff from their much larger than necessary souvenir shop.
  • Interesting building, but 90% of the tour was a sales pitch for the tourist souvenirs they had on sale throughout the building.
  • Another tourist trap where they try to sell you stuff! If you have a spare ticket and a few spare minutes, you could pop in here. But otherwise it isn't worth making a trip there
