Penang Peranaken Mansion
What we say:
This museum of sorts is a completely recreated mansion of a rich Baba family from over a century ago. Built in the 19th century it was home to Kapitan Cina Chung Keng Kwee, who was the leader of the Hakka Clan and a prominent businessman too. The family's opulent lifestyle has been recreated in full -- including the somewhat bizarrely placed British red telephone box in the courtyard. The mansion is beautiful and well worth visiting to gain an insight into how Penang's upper crust once got by.
