Nice place to visit and to learn some history of the mining in Ipoh. The place is well-maintained and the guide is very knowledgeable. Really a good place to spend a couple of hours before take a trip to Concubine Lane within walking distance.

Dear Wonderdragon, thank you for taking the time in writing about your visit to Han Chin Pet Soo. We're delighted to hear that you found our museum a "nice place to visit and to learn some history of the mining in Ipoh", being housed at the old hakka tin miners' club, we found it only apt to tell the story of the people and the industry that helped develop Ipoh. We hope you enjoyed the experience and tour, see you again some time soon!

This museum needs prior reservation. There is guided tour available in English or Mandarine Language. Do make reservation to avoid disappointment. Be instantly transported back to 1870s mining town and the lifestyle of early Chinese settlers in British Malaya. This museum is very complete well researched.

Dear Jackleemy, thank you for taking the time in writing about your visit to Han Chin Pet Soo. Yes, although we do welcome walk-in visitors (subject to availability of the tours), we'd always encourage our visitors to book ahead to avoid disappointment. The tours are also available in Cantonese and Malay if these were preferable to visitors. Being housed at the old hakka tin miners' club, we found it only apt to tell the story of the people and industry that helped build and develop Ipoh into what it is today. We hope you enjoyed the experience and tour, see you again some time soon!

We enjoyed the guided tour very much. The number of people allowed in (20) per tour might be slightly cramped, especially if there are children who may not have been included in the head count. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and made light jokes throughout the tour. She was very good! Recommend this place to any visitor, local or overseas, who would like to know about the history of the Chinese hakka clan in Ipoh.

It is a very interactive and informative 1.5hours tour. The tour guide is very engaging and friendly. She took her time to explain the history, let us read the additional information on board. She also gave ample of time for us to look at the displays and took in the atmosphere. Recommended.
