Eye-opening, informative tour with many different rooms / museums halls full of antiques and Peranakan collection. The guide gave lots of back-story on the display items, explained extensively on even the smallest details. Overall a must visit for tour first time in Penang!

This is truly a gorgeously-restored space. Most interesting are the marriage beds, done up to reflect various eras of history. A great 30min quick tour, after which you can wander the space and take photos. The collection of antiques and art is truly astounding.

Thid was the 2nd time I am here. First one was when did our pre-wedding photoshoot and did not really went around and have a look see of the place and the most recent one was with my family. It was worth a visit getting to know the family who has lived in the mansion. I recommend to join the guide as he has a lot of untold stories about the mansion. The place is beautiful and rich with history and culture. Paying a small amount as entrance fee is worth it, TBH.

My wife and I visited this mansion after reading the reviews. Tickets for adults are priced at RM20 each and the tickets come with a guided tour in either English or Chinese. It was a decent experience for us exploring the big mansion. It would be better if there could be more write-ups for visitors to read on their own as they explore around on their own.

This Straits Chinese Mansion and Museum is definitely worth a visit. Everywhere you look is something interesting. It's full of antique furniture, artifacts, and photos. The building is much bigger than what it appears from the entrance, so many beautifully furnished rooms.

My partner and I visited this mansion in March. The English-speaking tour guide was such a wonderful person. We enjoyed the whole tour because of him, he's funny, friendly, cute and knowledgeable! That said, it's a wonderful experience getting to see the antiques and setup from years ago :) A wonderful experience and highly recommended especially for foreigners :D

It was a very interesting visit, with a guide (in English at 13:00). I highly recommend to use the free of charge guide, because without her/him you would just see nice building, nice object but with her/him you will understand the life of the people here 100 years ago.
