Penang State Museum

Updated: 28 Aug 2013

The Penang Museum sits in the building of the old Penang free School along Lebuh Farquhar. Exhibits explain the history of the state through photographs, artefacts and maps so it’s not exactly hands on but it’s educational. The art gallery here also displays paintings of Penang through the ages.



Lebuh Farquhar, George Town, Penang.
