  • For young and old, even my mother in law and Father in law enjoyed taking photos. It brings us laughter and joy. Worth spending the money. Ticket costs adults rm29 and student rm16 per pax 
  • Made this our first stop on our first day in Penang and it gives a quick glance at its colorful history and culture. Has some nice artifacts displayed with an adjoining black light section. 
  • Gives information on the history of Penang. Also includes the 3D mural street art museum. This is fun and the friendly staff use your own camera to take your photos of you in the displays

  • Interesting place for information on Penang's recent history including displays and artifacts from colonial days. The second half of the museum contains several rooms of wall paintings and props that you can use to pose for photos. If you're not into this type of activity you could walk through fairly quickly.
  • Funny, we take a lot picture with image 3d. And you can understand about history of penang
  • Good for taking 3d amazing photos
  • Not bad. But, the price of a little rolls over.
  • For the fun n photos
