They will try to sell you things in here but it's worth visiting to see the height and photos of the old floods that happened here.
We enjoyed our visit here (except at the end where they try to convince you to buy something). You take a short tour and learn about how they used to (and still do) live in these types of homes. It was packed with tourists when we visited and I think it would have been nicer to be able to not... More
We saw several of the clan houses and the assembly halls during our visit to Hoi An. The Tan Ky house was our favorite. It is conveniently located across from the Morning Glory restaurant where we had lunch. I enjoyed the historic house and the Japanese influence. The explanation and photos around the house were helpful. If you only visit... More
You are required to buy a ticket for the old town of Hoi An which gets you into 5 attractions. One of these was the Old House of Tan Ky. There are a number of old houses you can visit on the ticket but we only had time to visit this one. It is worth seeing as you get a... More

You are requested to take place with around 10 other people in the living room where you get an explanation of the history of the house and some of the decorations (less than 5 min). The room is nice, especially the pearl inset in... More
The house is really beautiful, and one of the few old houses in Hoi An that offer some kind of explanation. However when we visited, we could not see half of it, due to the recent flood. The "tour" lasted approx 2 min, 1 of them trying to get us to buy something. They still asked the full ticket though.
We visited this one of the old houses while they were still in the process of cleaning up after the floods. That in itself was interesting, seeing how they respond by lifting up the furniture upstairs by pulleys. The flood markers on the wall in the kitchen was also worth seeing, and the level of decoration in this house is... More
I visited this and several other historic sites in the Ancient Town. They're all mildly interesting and 5 minute visits. The most interesting was this 200 year old house that marked flood levels on one wall. The highest flooded the entire ground floor! They were accustomed to living on the second floor and lifting stuff by pulley during flood season.
