White colonnades and gold lattice balusters give a nod to the British Colonial era and the wealthy merchants who inhabited the former family home that now houses Colonial Penang Museum. The house is intricate and elaborate, with large stained-glass windows, gold sculptures, and marble statues throughout. The museum preserves the lifestyle of the house's former tenants with antiques and handwritten accounts plus furniture, paintings, and personal effects. Visitors can tour the house with the help of a knowledgeable guide; tours are included in the cost of admission.

When i arrive. This place is close. I ask the guy infront politely can i take a pict just for a minute and yes he let me do it. Many ols stuff there. Soo heritage and pretty
It brings us back to the past! The museum has wonderful colonial era collections. The owner spent 5 decades to collect all these from old houses and families in Penang and surrounding area. We learnt so much from Nicole, our guide, about Penang Island history and uniqueness. She passionately brought the stuff to live with her narration. It's a recommended visit to complement Straits Chinese history knowledge. All of the collections are well maintained and some has high historical value and rarity. They also have remarkable collection of non-religious high quality stained glass. It's a hidden gem.
