"Legendary Artist - P. Ramlee's Birth House" Rumah Kelahiran P.Ramlee House Museum Tip by Azri_Azmi


The P. Ramlee House is a museum situated along Jalan P. Ramlee (formerly Caunterhall Road) in Penang, Malaysia. The building is a restored wooden house that commemorates the late P. Ramlee, Malaysia's foremost singer, actor, composer, and director.

Originally built in 1926 by his father and uncle, the house had previously undergone successive repairs before being taken over by the National Archives as an extension of its P. Ramlee Memorial project in Kuala Lumpur. Items on display at the house include his life history, personal memorabilia related to his life in Penang, and items belonging to his family.

I had a good encounter here with P Ramlee's friend who is also the care taker of this house. It's a great honored to meet him in person and listen to his story all about P Ramlee from his boyhood until before he passed away.

I can't snap any picture inside the house as it is not allowed to take picture while we are in the house.
