"State Museum" Penang Museum & Gallery Tip by Ines28

Penang Museum & Gallery, Penang: 12 reviews and 22 photos

  State Museum
by Ines28

Situated near High Court at Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah in the city centre of Georgetown.
It was originally a school in 1821. It is now a State Museum housing many fine collection of historical items such as Chinese bridal chamber, antiques, maps, paintings, photographs, books, and artefacts providing a complete information on Penang's history.

You will like this museum even if you are not a typical "museum-goer" as it is really interesting (and it has a good air-conditioning) ;-)
