    A valuable heritage, must-visit in Medan
    Our guide brought us here. For Rp35,000, you get a guide to explain the rooms, the family and descendants of this great man, and even take portrait photos posed against beautiful surroundings. Photography isn't allowed in three rooms.

    Nice tour
    Had a nice, free private tour around the mansion included in ticket. NO pressure for a tip. Nice interior, In some rooms (family shrine?) it's not allowed to take photos. Hidden between modern buildings, easy to miss.

    Residential turns museum
    This place used to be the home of an influential person in Medan named Tjong A Fie. The house is really big and beautiful. Although it has become a museum, there’s still praying rooms used by the family which tourists aren’t allowed to step in. The entrance was 35,000IDR per person during my visit and there was a guide that would lead the way. It’s really hot inside though, better bring a hand fan with you, or anything you can use to fan yourself.

Very interesting and unexpected. Visiting Tjong A Fie Mansion was like stepping back in time. Beautiful old home with such history and beautiful craftsmanship of another era.

Very interesting mansion. The family history was interesting. The guide was a bit uncertain with his English so he wasn't offering as much information as we realised another guide was offering but he tried.

very interesting. We knew nothing about this place and, maybe, should have hired a guide. We just had no idea what we had come to or how large it actually was. This kept as a memorial to a leading Chinese citizen of Medan.

It’s great historical place with antique things in the house, the location is in the city area so you don’t need to have a long trip to get there

This is the only attraction we visited in Medan. It was a very beautiful place. Interesting history. The surrounding area is very run down and dusty.
