One of the best museum in Penang where one can learn and understand all about the food culture and history of Malaysia.

You will find larger than life food form of this multiracial country as well as interesting food facts and the history of the food here.

I believe this is an one of its kind museum in the region.

Totally worth the RM25 entrance fee.

This museum are for anyone who enjoys Food and consider themselves a Foodie. A place that's educational, teaches the history of Malay, Asian Food, and the Multi-Cultural place that blends all nationalities, as we all learn we are all the same when it comes to the Universal Food Language. Enjoyed this place much!

To be honest we only went in to cool off from the midday sun as we could feel the aircon when walking past. Release your hidden child and enjoy the wonderfood exhibitions. I was with my parents and they went crazy looking for the next photo opportunity. If you want an hour of laughter with your friends, family or whoever, it's worth a visit .

It is a nice little exhibition of cuisines. I find it a bit pricey to enter but that's ok for once in a lifetime. A lot of information and the food models are so real-like.

I just don't enjoy the visit so much because the crews tail the visitor to take photos which they will ask if you want to buy once you exit. I know they are just doing their job, but come on, give us some space. On the good side, they are helpful to take photos for visitors using their smartphones.

It's just models and a little info on food. Not particularly engaging unless you love taking photos of fake food to be honest. Was 25 myr per adult and we spent about 30min inside, it's only a few rooms... the only good thing was the aircon to be honest.

I've paid MYR25 per pax felt so expensive ! Was a little disappointed as it was smaller than I though , as being a Malaysian myself , I think this place is not worthy to go as I see the real thing everyday and everywhere . Parking is a big problem in there so most of the drivers in Penang were unsure and won't recommended to visit here . Never back again !

Safe to say this is the weirdest kind of museum I've been to. If it's a rainy day and you want something to do it would be worth it. Or good with kids. But generally could be missed from a quick trip here.

Good for photo taking with all the blown up version of the dishes. Other than that, nothing special nor interesting.

It was a nice break from just eating and shopping. You get to know the various dishes from the multi culture mix here... I cannot even name some of the food ;-).
Definitely need to see the ‘original’ breed of fruit before it got ‘domesticated’... shocking!

I arrived when the museum just had opened. I was the only person there. When I was walking in to every room, there was always someone from the staff that asked if I wanted to have a picture taken. The first woman who asked was extremely rude. When I was looking at the exhibitions the staff would stand 1 metre from me. Just standing there and following me. It was like they thought I was gonna steal something. I wouldn't go back.
