The Chan family built the former residence in 1861, and four generations lived here before converting it into a museum in 1985. Admire the eclectic and opulent artifacts the family collected from across the globe, and glimpse the richness of Peranakan culture in the architecture's combining of Chinese, Malay, and colonial British influences. Take a guided tour to learn about the dynastic family and the way their individual tastes shaped the house and its present-day appearance.

  • Museum was clean and well maintained. Guided tour are available depends on the time of the day but it wasn’t available when we got there, but the information book was informative enough for us. RM 16 charge was money well spent, we learnt quite a bit whilst there. There’s signs clearly say don’t touch the antique items but sadly seems the signs were still ignored by some visitors. There was insufficient staffs to enforce any kind of control. People really need to respect these historic items to preserve them for our future generations..
  • Went on 7 Dec 2022. No more guided tours. RM 18 per adult. Will be loaned guide books in English or Chinese that you can read yourself as you walk around the house. Some sections of the house have very dim lighting and guests can only take photos without flash. Closed on certain days. Check their website before going.
