This place has a lot to see and is well worth a visit. The only thing, I’d say is that I wish they’d only kept the things that belonged to the original family. There’s a lot of furniture that was added later, so some rooms...More

This place really feels like you stepped into the early 1900s and I learned so many interesting facts about the Chinese making home in Malaysia. The Babas were very rich business people that had it all back then. This place is truly awesome to visit.

Pinang Peranakan Mansion is a marvellous step back in time. We thoroughly appreciated our visit. The Mansion recreates the style of living, a century ago, enjoyed by some of the very wealthy Chinese residents of George Town. Mixed Malay, Chinese, British and European styles and...More

I'm not sure I'm expert enough to describe the importance of the architecture. Perhaps, it's the unique blending of faux Chinese and Malaysia styles that rendered the entire Peranakan culture that much interesting. First... More

Yup! They do have English/Chinese tour guides. The guides use simple English to describe about the lifestyle of the Peranakans who lived in the mansion, so your kids will be able to understand the tour as well.

They provide free tour everyday, from 9.30am to 5pm. You just need to get entrance ticket and follow the tour. :)
