If you like historical places and want to learn more about the Chinese culture then this place is for you. Chen Family Ancestral Hall, also known as Chen Clan Academy, is an olden historical building which is also considered a temple. Inside paintings narrating the stories of the Chinese divinities cover the walls. Crafts and sculptures which were once taught in there also form part of the exhibition.

The home is very well preserved and chock full of all sorts of treasures; ivory carvings, paper cuttings, silks, furniture, etc. I especially liked the restoration work that they have done on the embellishments on the edge of the roof. Putting the color back on makes them so vibrant and alive.
