Penang House of Music George Town
#1 of 56 Museums in Penang Island
It's a refreshing change from very tourist-commercialized museums, so if you'd rather visit a museum with soul, PHOM is a great place to go.
But the best thing about the museum was undoubtedly our tour guide Joyce, her knowledge was only bettered by her enthusiasm, sprinkled with a few interesting anecdotes, which made for an unforgettable experience!
