From the name of the museum one would expect to see lovely works of art in glass form. What you get are a few pieces of glass and loads of selfie opportunities. There was one glass art work purported to be the largest art work, which was several panels of glass coupled together, a few separate panels of glass and... More

Items on display are signages, art objects, stained window panels and small items like paper weights and fridge magnets. The longest batik glass artwork as certified by the Malaysian Book of...

We visited this Unique Museum which happens to house "The Longest motive batik glass painting (40 feet in length and is 5 feet tall)" which is in the Malaysian Books of Records and is the first of its kind in Malaysia. The museum also provides guided tours, where staff will explain the various Glass Making Processes; such as Glass Staining,... More

I have been travelled to this museum many years ago when it was located in the old address and feel nothing special, and when it re-located to this new address, it open my eye to a new world of glass. Not just the creative usage of glass, also the manufacturing of glass is actually so interesting.

Nothing much inside. Great for photo shooting only. Not worth the price (rm15) for a short visit inside. Staffs are very friendly.

I brought my American friends to visit this place. It was my first time too. Basically, the people there were trying to get us to buy things, because it is a commercial shop and not a museum. This is definitely not a museum. It is just a small shop and everything has a price tag. It was a waste of... More

As mentioned in some previous reviews, this 'museum' is a commercial shop. They have some posters with explanations about the manufacturing process, and everything else has a price tag! If you want to buy some overpriced pieces of glass, go there, if you want to visit a museum, don't waste your time there.

In Penang there are quite a few museums that are actually just shops and this is one of them. Entrance was free and as soon as we entered one of the sales consultants approached us to explain what they sell and also how they make some of the products. There were plenty of colourful glasswork on display and you can... More
