#1 of 40 in Museums in Sumatra
Take a tour of Tjong A Fie's Mansion to get a sense of the hybrid Chinese-European architectural style typical of Peranakan Cina--ethnic Chinese who emigrated to the Malay peninsula. Completed in 1900, the mansion belonged to the eponymous Chinese magnate who came to own much of the land in Medan through his plantations. A guide provides a basic overview of each room, as well as some background on the family and the legacy of Tjong A Fie. If the tour seems to be over too quickly, ask to continue looking around, and you can wander through the elegantly decorated rooms at your leisure.

  • It is a museum which originally had the residence of Tjong A Fie, one of the richest people in Indonesia in his day. Ethnic and oriental atmosphere makes this place interesting for photos

  • Read the Comments people meet the guide YG Judes, but I even met the guide friendly and beautiful, explained with a long length. Without a guide can be confused. Just outside the fact there are some pickled that are rather hard language, must be changed, because the reply can also be another city that is not unusual with a loud sound, as if it will be in a digurui, but I love 5 stars, because this cultural heritage has a historical value.

  • Great place. I feel like i travel back in time. They're doing a good job maintaining most of the household items and make a great replica when the chairs/table is broken
  • Wonderful time spent here absorbing the feel of this old home, looking at the photos and getting some insight into the past. You have to pay extra for a guide even though the ticket states guided tour...maybe it was because we are not locals?? 35,000 entry per person.
