Penang House of Music reviews
A fantastic and little-known highlight of Penang. Hidden away on the upper level of Komtar mall. We had a free tour guide who was expert and passionate. Great thing to do in the heat of the day...

This museum has everything perfectly maintained, and Elaine is cool and passionate. They should start a YouTube channel. A museum of the highest standard, everything works, displays are high quality and the curator knows the content. Has a radio studio inside and high tech everything. Lovers of music and history of technology for music will love this place.
This is such a wonderful museum, a real labour of love. It basically tells the history of Penang through its music. It's interactive, informative, entertaining and has just so many layers of historical and cultural significance. We had the pleasure of being taken on a superb guided tour by Kevin Theseira and got to meet the awesome founder Paul Augustin, too. It's all painstakingly and rigorously researched and presented very engagingly. And the entire collection will give you an inspiring view of the sexy, super-diverse and organically multicultural history of Malaysia that is often obscured by the news headlines about the country's current political landscape. Be sure to check out the shop as well!
