  • 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
