Han Chin Pet Soo (闲真别墅), known as the first Hakka tin mining museum in Malaysia founded by Towkay Leong Fee and it is now managed by Ipoh World Sdn. Bhd. It is located on the edge of Ipoh's Old Town, not far away from the well-known Panglima Lane (Concubine Lane). Since the founding of the Hakka Miners' club in 1893, this place has always been a mystery as entry was barred to public except for club members and their VIP guests. Despite now the building has transformed into a house for private exhibition, nonetheless visitors are allowed to enter into this historical building but appointment is required to be made prior to the visit.

    We're booked on a 2pm guided tour. We arrived early and join the 11:30am (around that time) guided tour.
    Picked up lots of information on how the people live, work and play during that time.
    Our guide is very good, very knowledgeable and experienced.
