I had a great experience visiting the Penang Peranakan Mansion. I highly recommend the guided tour, which is complimentary with the price of admission. The guides are experienced, informative, humorous, and able to answer various questions on the artifacts in the Penang Peranakan Mansion. 


What impressed me most about the Penang Peranakan Mansion is the history and ingenuity of its designers and occupants. Though they didn't have modern technology, they used various creative methods to make their lives more comfortable and convenient. 


The Main Dining Hall in the Penang Peranakan Mansion is set up to allow the Master of the House a view of the Main Entrance, and 2 Side Entrances, almost like an old CCTV system, but using mirrors instead. 


Sadly, I didn't have much time to spend at the Penang Peranakan Mansion, as we were rushing that day. As such, I couldn't take much photos, nor could I properly look at the various exhibits. Would like to visit the Penang Peranakan Mansion again!
