The rich history of Indonesian Chinese immigrants from the early 17th century is told at this quaint little private run museum. The guide was friendly and made an effort to help me understand the stories better by telling them half in English and half in Bahasa Indonesia.

As it's privately funded, there are still many things that could be improved. I do hope this place gets better recognition.

When I read reviews about how difficult to find this place, it really is difficult. Located inside traditional market Pasar Lama, behind Kelenteng Boen Tek Bio. I had to circled the street twice to finally found it. If you bring car, park in front of Bank CIMB Niaga on the right side of the Kisamaun street and the museum is about 500 m behind by foot.

It was raining during my visit, so its even harder to reach since the path is full of traditional market dirts (if you know what I mean). Anyway, when we finally reached the place, all the difficults are paid. The place is beautiful with its details china ornaments.

We are always accompanied by guide during the trip, so dont worry you'll get more knowledge inside. Our guide, Dani, is very informative and friendly.

Note: wear as comfy as possible clothes and foot wear since its located inside traditional market, the road can be very dirty especially when its raining.

As I am a local Tangerang people, I am so proud about this museum. It reminds me about my anchestor and some collections I ever saw in my grandparent's house loong time ago.
Wishing this museum always have good maintenance and fund to preserve all the collections inside.

Located in the middle of Pasar Dalam, Tanggerang old market, is the first Chinese Herritage museum in founded by Udaya Halim
Its recommended that you make an appointment prior to the visit as it may have group visit.
Entrance fee is Rp25,000 / person (Cad 2.50) or Rp100,000 ( Cad 10) including lunch.
The museum is located inside the old market, so after visiting the museum you can buy some local food which are sold along the street
