Lately, Penang has been bursting with so many new and cool places to visit. From quaint heritage cafes sprouting up at every nook and cranny of Georgetown like mushrooms after a rain to huge, sprawling shopping malls where one can find almost any item under the sun; museums are most certainly another treasure worth discovering and exploring.
For as long as I can remember, I knew Eric had a thing for museums (though I never could comprehend why). Coz you see….all this while I never really shared that same interest. But lately, after having been to the US and seeing the museums there, and now having visited some of the new ones in Penang, I finally began to view museums in a different perspective…..not all so dry and boring anymore. Who knew….even my 4-year old loved it! Check out these pictures (unfortunately a little low in quality as they were all taken using our Iphones)
History Museum of Penang (Pinaon Time Tunnel)
Walking through this museum is like walking through a time tunnel showcasing the history of Penang in chronological order. Visitors are given a piece of paper with some key notes with blank spaces and are asked to fill-in-the-blanks as we tour the museum. Cheryl joined in too.
Made in Penang Interactive Museum
This is a cool concept of how to make history come to life. The exhibits in this museum are three-dimensional and you can learn about Penang’s culture and history by being a part of it.
