First floor is more on Penang history since Sir Francis Light settling into Penang. A good for place for those who loves history. The second floor is more on 3d glowing art. You can take photos (staffs are placed to help visitors) and upload into online social accounts. Interesting place for family and friends.
A 2-in-1 museum. The first floor is a history museum about penang. Which a section is purposely made dark and you need to carry an electric lamp (provided) to view the exhibits (would be hard to view for those with poorer eyesight). On the 2nd floor is a 3D art museum which there are plenty of helpers which help you to take photos of your group with the various artworks which are really interesting. However, was more keen on the history of Penang and was not too keen on being “forced” to pay for both exhibits.
