This is definitely the best museum tour I've ever had. I made booking online before visiting. If you are lucky enough, you will also be able to join the tour if there are still empty seats available. Mr Leong is super knowledgeable and friendly. He shared almost everything about the Hakka culture with tin mining, very detailed and clear story telling from him. There are also many antique pieces displayed at the museum and bring back so much memories of my parents. Definite a 10/10. Strongly recommend if you are visiting Ipoh.
A wonderful visit to this museum. The tour guide explains in depth on the history of Tin mining in Ipoh as well as the migration of Hakka people from China to Tanah Malaya. It is a free tour but visitors are welcomed to give donations accordingly as it is a non profit museum.
Best museum tour that I have. You need to make reservation online. Can scan the QR code to make reservations. The person in charge gave very detailed and informative history of Ipoh town. The entrance is free. They accept donations. It is run by NGO association
Lovely guided tour to one of the iconic associations in Ipoh. The start to the prosperous tin mining and how one Hakka man from China made it possible. The historical background to this gorgeous 3 storey building is fascinating and so well maintained!
Great history about the Hakka and the history of tin mining in Ipoh. Be sure to book a reservation online as you can't enter without any booking. Tour guide Mr Leong is very knowledgeable and gave an interesting talk.
