  • Love this place. A must visit. A job well done by Paul and team. Closed due to Covid now, hoping for a quick reopening.
  • Such a cool place. Very interesting to be able to learn about the history of music in Penang and to see all the cool stuff they have here including old radios and record players. Also love the integration of technology into the museum for activities. I had a good time listening to some music and playing some of the instruments. Joyce was an excellent guide and made it really fun! Highly recommend! :)
