Follow the history of Penang in an interesting and fluent timeline. Well worth a vist. Add on the fluoro 3D photos makes for a great time. Kids would love it too.

Well laid out and informative journey through the history of Penang. The photos and displays enhanced the history as did the video. Not sure we needed the 3D stuff for kids at the end!!

A good way to while away some time if a little over priced, the first part of the museum is dedicated to the history of penang, but to be honest there was not a great deal to it some pictures and mannequins, the 2nd part was the 3d glow in the dark museum which was fun and the attendants were more then happy to take multiple photos for you with your own cameras against the exhibits, 3rd part was called anti gravity

For foreigner is RM29 admission. It’s Fun as there are staff assisting you to take photos. At the beginning greeting us will be history of Penang. Francis Light was the founder of the British colony of Penang (in modern-day Malaysia) and its capital city of George Town in 1786. Exhibits-the life of immigrants,Chinese clothing,Nonya n Baba wears and wares,etc...The establishment of Penang.

Then coming up will be the 3D Mural Art,where we can not only see but touch,hold n pose to take photos,there will be crews assisting us to take. Having tea at coffeeshop,riding a trishaw and riding a bicycle.

The next floor will be Kung Fu Panda,Storybook telling,pulling a rope competing with Mr Bean,rescued by Spiderman,attacks by giant octopus. Upside down theme,whereby,you just pose maybe yoga pose in order to show that u r floating.

The Fluorescence Room,all the paintings will glow in the dark. If u r wearing white,it glow too. Themes,Avatar world,Dinosaurs,magic shows,Batman riding bike,StarWars,trap in a ghost room,etc...
