The tour guide is knowledgeable and had many information to share with regards to the rich history of Ipoh and the origins on the Han Chin Pet Soo building. The muzeum is well preserve and kept. You can still see many of the original building structure and decorations. The tour is around 60-90 minutes with deep and elaborate explanation by the guide. You will be guided to see all the muzeum displays and artifacts with the tour guide explaining to you all the stories and the history behinds those stuff you see. Recommend to all who want to learn more about Ipoh history and the Hakka immigrants

It was really informative visit and amazing experience in this historical museum. The tour guide is very enthusiastic in explaining the history of Ipoh and the Miner club as well as the life of Hakka people (one of the Chinese subgroup in Malaysia). I have learned so so much for that one hour trip. I would tell my friend that it is a must to visit to this place when travel to Ipoh. The museum is run by a non-profit organization and the admission is free, therefore, I would strongly recommend that visitors to donate a small amount of money to keep this unique museum continues to operate. Lastly, a huge thanks to Ipoh World in preserving the history of this beautiful city.
