The house was rebuilt in the 18th century. It is built over 2 floors and 2 inter connecting houses. The architecture is split between Chinese And Japanese wood. This was a merchant's house and the ground floor was for stock that was to be sold immediately while the second floor was for stock that was to be unsold later. There are antiques in the house for viewing. The second floor is closed off to the public. Also there is a gift shop in the house.

The Old House Tan Ky in Hoi An has left us with full of impressions... Since generations, generations and still more generations this venerable property, constructed in Fengshui architectural style, has survived, without any harm for the wooden construction, the many frequent floods of the area, so that the actual owners proudly can display their ancestor’s philosophy and culture of dignity, peace and respect... Together with the Japanese Bridge, one of the many “Must See” points of the rich history of Hoi An...

The interior was interesting. The basic building style can easily be seen by the wooden frame. No fancy ceilings, mouldings. Just the bare necessities in a home which has lasted for a long time.

It is probably my favorite monument I visited while in Hoi An.

Nothing breathtaking to be expected, apart maybe the watermarks for the past floods.

But the house is well preserved and give a feel for the glorious past of this once major trading port.

Personally, I did not find this house a very worthwhile experience, it was incredibly small; literally just walk in one door and out the other. In addition having travelled to many asian countries in the past it was definitely not something new to see. Also we had a guide from the house tell us the history but it was a very confusing timeline jumping everywhere and we could not work out what was happening.

See it if you want to since it is a very quick visit, but otherwise I would not recommend it if someone asked me what t do in Hoi An.
