Pathetic. Not a museum at all.

This is a tourist con, pure & simple. A cheap, horrific & unpleasant experience in a dirty, vile & exploitative environment.

We specifically asked the joker who took our money that it was suitable for our 7 year old. He said it was. Well it isn’t. We walked thru the entrance curtain into a dingy corridor filled with blood stained dummies in sheets. We turned about immediately, having been in the ‘museum’ less than 30 seconds. When we asked for a refund of the MYR68 we had paid, the idiot on the door refused to refund us.

Such a cheap sham. And totally unsuitable for children.

Fun and Informative

Some exhibits are a bit scary while some are really funny. All exhibits come with detailed explanation in English, Malay and Chinese. But the descriptions in the English language are quite poor because they probably translated it from Malay or Mandarin without checking on the spelling and grammar. They even have various suggestions on how to post to take a photograph with the "ghost" .

Not worth the money and time.

Luckily I bought my ticket through trip advisor so the cost was only around 15rm. The exhibits themselves... Well the quality is quite inconsistent, some exhibits look a lot more detailed and well made while others look like a kindergarteners paper mache job. Most of my time was spent trying to decipher the signs (with poor english). The whole museum probs takes around 30 mins... I wouldn't recommend this museum to my friends or fam at 30rm it is expensive, at 15rm more in line with its worth but still not really worth your time.
The only positive is the staff members who are courteous and friendly.

Very poor exhibit/museum.Neither interesting or scary! Reminded me of being on a ghost train when i was very young without even the excitement of being on a train.

Small but enjoyable

The museum was small but we enjoyed ourselves. There's a lot of 'ghost' to take photo with. It will be great if museum is bigger.

Fun for those young at heart

Just a small cool place for a short trip. May take 30min to an hour here to pose for photos. It's good to bring kids at and enjoyable for those who just wanna take photos with different horror movie sets.

Kids were scared, meaning the mesuem is doing a good job. Staffs were very kind and helpful. It was a good place to stop for AC room after long tiring walk in Penang.

Interesting and good for short visit

Was very interesting to learn about the different types/cultures of ghosts, but tbh I was too freaked out by how real the ghosts looked to stand there to read and find out more or even use the props provided to take photos with the mannequin-ghosts. The props were a little smelly tho, but overall well maintained. We missed out a part of the exhibition and the staff let us walk back in to take a look again.

Worth a trip, not scary actually, only scary when there's a big group ahead of you and they like to scare their friends, you get the ripple effect. Otherwise, very interesting and informative, great effort in crafting the experience. :)
