  • 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.
  • Fantastic tour of the Penang house of music provided by Elaine! Really had lots of fun playing the instruments and learning about the rich history of Penang and Malayan music. Must visit if you are in Penang.
