Eva was an excellent tour guide, she really knew the finer details of the contents of this museum. We found it utterly fascinating and being left to soak it all in rather than rushed through a particular series of displays was much appreciated.

This splits into two with an opportunity to wander through an affluent Chinese house with the rooms largely as they were and the opportunity to view Chinese jewellery of the early 20th century. This makes a visit here a real pleasure. It was relaxed and...More

I have found most Malaysian museums to be lacking in exhibits and with too much text-based information. Fortunately, the jewellery museum isn’t one of these! It was full of interesting artefacts and the young guide was really interesting. Best by far!..and allowed to take photos,...More

Wonderfully preserved and presented. Nice welcome and guided tour. Compared to the neighboring Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum, the Jewelry Museum is warmer as the house is still inhabited. And the jewel collection is unique in town. But the later museum offer bigger display of...More
