Terrible. Epic waste of time. It’s full of tacky ornaments and there is barely a fact to be learnt. Not worth it at all

It is probably one of the worst museum that I have been to. Disappointment is probably an understatement. DO NOT GO ! Whatever you do a Penang Hill, just don’t waste your money or time for this museum. Enough said.

Stupid place to go with RM10 per head is very expensive. Place is too small (Maybe smaller than your kitchen) Nothing interesting

If you are visiting Penang Hills, my advise is to skip this place. One of the worst "paid" so-called museums ever. Don't even bother going here. No wonder the ticketing guy gave us a big discount on the entrance fee.

You can borrow a Harry Potter wizard cloak and scarf of each respective houses in Hogwarts. Then, try using your imagination to snap some cool photos around the small museum

The owl is frequently associated with mysterious scene like in a ghost's story. With its two big eyes shinning in the dark night and it certainly give you goose pimples and cold sweats. Most of us don't quite like owl simply of its scary scenario...More
