An interesting old home with many stories to tell. This museum contains a collection of furniture and about everything else from bygone days. See how the Chinese merchants lived. A pleasant visit.

It's a small history museum in an old little re-furbished house in George Town. A nice visit to learn about this part of history of Penang.
