"USM Museum & Gallery" Top 5 Page for this destination University of Science, Malaysia Tip by SLLiew


The Universiti Sains Malaysia main campus is located at Sungei Dua, Penang Island just off the Gelugor Exit when coming over from Penang Bridge. Located on the top of the hill of the campus is the worth visiting Museum & Gallery.

This two storey building, previously a military colonial barrack building, houses exhibits of local Malaysian traditional culture, music with interactive displays including archaelogy, anthropology, astronomy, science and technology of local industries.

Worth spending an hour or two especially for chidren. Admission is free. It is a big walk up the hill from any of the three entrances and so better to drive there or by motorcylce or bicycle.

Open daily. Admission is free. One ringgit if you use a camera.
