What to Expect?

Discover the delicate creation process of one of the most popular brands of Chinese herbal teas at Ho Yan Hor Museum. It is also the gallery about the inspirational life of Dr. Ho Kai Cheong, the creator of the health-giving Ho Yan Hor tea.

The Ho Yan Hor Museum resides at the two-storey building where Dr Ho started this iconic tea. It is in honor and memory of his achievements, and offer an in-depth record of Dr Ho’s journey from start till today. The Ho Yan Hor Museum includes the following sections:

1. Education corner / Story boards

2. Documentary videos

3. Display of the antiques and artifacts

4. Tea bar to serve Ho Yan Hor tea

There will usually be a tour guide to provide a short explanation before you proceed into the museum . Visitors would get 3 cups of herbal tea with different flavour at the end. Expect the tour guide to explain thoroughly but worries not - they are not pushy at selling even though there is a sales gallery. Highly recommend for a stop by if you are nearby or plan a trip to Ipoh downtown.

    Free entrance but would need to pre book slot in advance thru their ig or website, not so crowded on weekday, really good tour guide and interesting explanation, would have around 30min to walk around by yourself and then got to try free samples of the tea, they sell their tea at cheaper price if you’re interested

    This is the place where the founder started his business and he stayed here. It's an old double storey shop house. The staff is friendly and give a brief history about the founder and the place. Then we proceed to explore the museum. The museum is very clean and well maintained. The herbal tea is served after the tour and you may purchase from them. The tea is nice.

    Free admission. Greeted by all d young staff. Can feel their passion. Need to book to visit/tour this museum. 2-storey shophouse where half of ground floor is d shopfront. Signages r well-made in 3 languages to help us understand ?? It's an enjoyable visit but not for d little ones. Staircase is v old so only 1 pax allowed each time. Can't imagine if a big group comes by.

    Enjoyed d herbal tea tasting at d end of tour. Wld prefer them to b more flexible in d sale of their teas so we can buy more ?

    This was not part of my itinerary. Was actually a side tour and I initially planned to go, only if I had time. Boy, am I glad I made it here!
    This has gotta be hands down the most informative and well kept musuem I ever been to in Malaysia. Its clean, bright and the tour guide, Lady Soo was so enthusiastic! She just makes the entire tour so much more joyful, considering her advanced age...Lady Soo is a darling!
    The musuem is FREE, yup FREE of charge. There are time slots though so check it before you pop up. I was a single rider and managed to squeeze myself in, thanks to the kind Lady Soo. She will also serve you complimentary Ho Yan Hor herbal tea after the tour. She gives a preliminary background on the founder and how to self navigate yourself around the musuem. The musuem is 2 floors, located in a restored pre war building so everything is fragile. Please do not touch, but pictures are welcomed. Multi-lingual large posters lined the walls explaining the humble beginnings at the ground floor, while first floor explains their international expansion.
    Be proud of our local products. I know I felt super proud after the tour.
    Its small but I think the size is just nice. You can easily spend 30minutes here if you read every artifact's explanation.
    In addition to the complimentary herbal tea after the tour, you also get to purchase the tea and other products at a promo rate. You can give them away as souvenirs too.
    Highly recommended to visit in Ipoh.
    Much more fun and educational than Concubine Lane.

    Didn't know reservation could be made so we needed to wait for 30 mins. It is a great tribute to the founder and learn the history of the company.

    6 different kids of herbal tea are served at the end.

    Note that they only sell the herbal tea in set/combo at the museum.
