Despite difficulties to find the location - it's in the middle of old part of Tangerang with narrow busy road (in fact it is also used as market during early hours !), you'll find old Chinese-style house laden with old memorabilia form Chinese tradition.
If you can contact the owner/attendant beforehand and come with 10-20 visitors, you can also arrange lunch - Chinese style - with traditional Chinese Tangerang style while you screen films/narration on old Chinese life in Tangerang...

It's a three-story Chinese shop house, near Tangerang's old market. It has many collections, ranging from old photos to books, from ornaments to statues. It's a good place to understand the 1740 Chinese massacre during the Dutch era. Many ethnic Chinese ran away from then Batavia, settling in Tangerang.
