I am glad I visited the house that is definitely the most interesting thing to see in Medan. A young guide gave me a very nice tour in English and told me more about the city.

I greatly enjoyed the exhibits in this mansion. The young guide was enthusiastic and very modest about her English ability. I liked the photos scattered around the house showing the great man and his family's lives. Very interesting and definitely a must see when you visit Medan.
