  • The biggest mistake of my life. I normally check out reviews on TripAdvisor before visiting any attraction. But happened to come across this one when visiting Penang Hill and on impulse paid the 12rm ...  more »
  • If you are visiting Penang Hills, my advise is to skip this place. One of the worst "paid" so-called museums ever. Don't even bother going here. No wonder the ticketing guy gave us a big discount on t...  more »
  • Penang Hill funicular, right away. Customers who checked came up why OWL? I thought was very good and walked in unexpectedly. Smaller but less widely because it is not gone and try the was and is coming out.

  • I would not suggest to go in as there is almost nothing much to see unless the weather is so hot or raining very heavily outside then it would be worth while to pay for the entrance fee to go in
  • Nothing interested to see inside. Like cheating the people $$. There very smart to put their ticket counter outside the food court (not at their door entrance inside food court), this make misleading people need purchase the ticket to enter the food court and also make people think the whole building (food court and souvinor shop) is their building). Really really not worth for the $$.
  • This kind of museum should have been closed long time ago. This place is a tourist trap. From outside looks impressive but will takes you 2 minutes to walk and see all old owl toys and pictures. Furthermore it costs RM10.00 per person
  • Educational for kids, lots of owl-themed storyline​. If there's guided tour will be perfect
  • Lots different designs of owl, different experience, entrance fee needed

Where to stay in George Town

As an established tourist destination, George Town offers a range of options making use of the city's famous architectural diversity, with boutique hotels in the old town themed around the history of the building they occupy. For such singular accommodations, expect to pay a little more. Budget hotels and unbranded local options provide a comfortable night sleep at an affordable rate. The coastal areas offer more expensive resort-style luxury rooms with sea views, while away from the beaten track, you'll find backpacker hostels providing good options for those wanting to keep on the move.
