Penang: State Museum

We went to the Penang State Museum on Wednesday afternoon. After seeing something as well-maintained as the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, the museum is a bit of a letdown. The building itself is not in great condition and the exhibits are a bit tired-looking. In one of the rooms, an information board had fallen off and was simply left to lean on the wall.

The entrance fee is only RM1 and there are a few interesting things to see there but I think improvement works are overdue. Anya was quite happy running around pointing at everything and asking “What’s this??” every few seconds though.
