I got a lot out of this preserved family mansion, however I had been to many other Peranakan sites so had a strong background already. I think it is well worthwhile but be aware it's a good example of a wealthier life style. I recommend...More

This is well worth a visit. In pristine condition and maintained to the highest level. Useful guidebooks for self-guided tour. Quality of all exhibits is of highest order. Very pretty exhibits throughout and some with a wow factor. Definitely worth visiting.

Found this place really interesting glimpse into historical life in Melaka. Went on Monday and guided tour not available. Still got good understanding of the place from book we were given and the information on the walls.

Generally ok. Quite educational and historical. Could be better if the guide did not rush through and look less serious. I learned something from here.
