After paying 150 Thb each, we joined a 90 minute tour given by the fifth generation owner/resident, Mr Tan. His historic family ventured from Fujian, China to Penang, Malaysia as traders, then settled here with the Tin mining industry. They built, then preserved, this mansion which displays original furnishings in an Asian and European style called Peranakan. He detailed the home’s blended architecture using special concrete, air circulation, stairway woodwork detailing life goals, Chinese furniture, blended fabrics and clothing and finally the wife’s kitchen.
Having visited the other 3 historical Peranakan museums here, this is the one I wouldn't have missed.

A really cool private home in Old Phuket that is open as a museum. Beautifully furnished in a style that mixes Asian and European cultures and gives great insight into Peranakan culture. We were fortunate to get a guided tour from one of the owners, who was very gracious and informative. Recommend checking this place out.

Well worth a visit if you’d like to learn more about the history of Phuket or enjoy visiting National Trust properties back in the UK. You won’t spend long here, but it’s very interesting to see the traditional architecture and furniture. We were even given a short guided tour by the current owner’s daughter in law before expiring a little on our own. Definitely pop in if you’re exploring old Phuket.

It was an interesting tour, guided by one of the owners of the house.
Most of the furniture is over 100 years old.
It was very informational and the owner explained the reason behind the layout and also told about the history of the family.
Very interesting.

Our tour guide was the owner and was full of information about the house and history. It was a pleasure to view and learn of its history. The architecture is beautiful and remains so unique of these house in Old Phuket. We walked here from our accomadation. Stopped for yummy refreshment on the way back and a warm day.

After several visits to Phuket, glad to have finally been able to tour this home but foremost with the fifth generation owner and resident, Mr Tan, providing a personal tour. There are so many links for the Tan family (and the Phuket Chinese of generations past) to Fujian, Malacca and Penang. Having visited and lived at these three locations, it was enriching to see how all the points tied together in Phuket. If you go, definitely worthwhile to check if Mr Tan is available (he is fluent in english). Mrs. Tan conducts tours in Thai. Should you decide to also tour the Phuket Thai Hua Museum (which offered lots of displays and text), I'd suggest coming here first as Mr Tan's insightful narratives offer more depth and understanding of Phuket's history. He has an admirable and respectful passion in promoting and maintaining Phuket's long Chinese history and contributions to Thailand.

Lovely to talk to close generation living descendants and residents of this mansion. The blend of Chinese and European is quite unique and well worth a visit for those curious on some of Phuket’s architecture and history. 150THB each to enter and you can browse at your leisure or speak to the family of a Ground Floor tour.

We love our history and museums and said we would pop in for a look. We didn't realize how rich the history of this place is. We happened to be greeted by the owner who gave us a personal knowledge filled tour of the house. He's a lovely very genuine person and we had a great chat with him again outside before we headed off ( to the blue elephant next door, an absolute must! ) I would recommend taking the time to walk around with him or any other members of the family giving the tour. We were initially a bit bust from the heat outside and had a few yawns under our masks, so we ended up asking questions about things that were covered earlier in the tour but he understood and simply told is again😊 we really enjoyed it and I would even go back again

Beautiful house. So much detail. They should have a docent to explain everything. We were lucky to be in a guided tour.

I thought this was the best historic place we visited in old town Phuket and I believe it’s the oldest. The mansion built in 1903 in the Sino-colonial style is really quite interesting and you feel like you’re walking back in time when you walk around the first floor. I think the family heirs may still live in the 2nd floor. It’s kept the way it was when people lived generations ago, paintings and pictures on the wall. I’m glad we stopped her. The house sits back a bit on some land so you get in a quieter area away from the heat of the street.
