Can know the living of people in old days.

The huse is old and the structure itself is as it used to be. It is interesting to know how people lived in old days.

After reading the reviews here which ranged from historical gem to touristic we went to this house as part of our ticket to Old Hoi An. There was some family history and some parts of the house are interesting to look at, but it really was at least 60% filled with objects for sale. It was hard to focus on... More

Not only is this an authentic old house, an historic gem, but it is the best place to buy embroidered tablecloths. The family members are all involved in the various crafts on show (and even claim to still live on the premises) Close to the Japanese Bridge - don't miss it

All the old houses in Hoi An are interesting but also very touristic and in the back have shops. This is how they get at your wallet! Hoi An is pretty but 2 days, including MySon (a must excursion) is enough.

Another of the old houses presenting a slice of life back in history. You can visit 5 places on your Hoi An ticket and this should be on your list.

This was probably the best of the houses in the Ancient town. Well maintained and still used. Had a quick tour and the chance to purchase items which we declined.

Nice to see this house still in use. We toured the house but noticed that they use it primarily to see wares particularly table cloths and napkins.

This is a great example of a historical house that is still inhabited by a family. They have items to buy in the house including traditional items that they still make by hand. It is interesting to view the layout of the house and the different rooms and spaces plus admire the woodwork used in the house. This house has... More

It is highly likely that you won't enjoy a visit to this old house. When you walk in the door you are taken on a tour. After a couple of sentences about the house you are taken around and shown things which you can buy such as embroidery and clothes. It is pushed on you by the "guide" showing you... More
