Insanity! Don't fall for it. If you like just giving money away - I will send you my address. We love owls - but this is really just a shop- they should not be charging entrance fees!!

The place is nicely set up In Penang Hill but I wouldn't call it a Museum though....more like a gallery or a boutique selling a lot of owls' related merchandise.

The entry fee is quite steep (MYR 10) they give you a small gift with the entry fee, overall experience was nothing to shout about.

It takes about 5 minutes to go through and is more a shop that sells all things owl rather than an owl museum.

Amazing display of all kind of Owls from every region. Kids get to do drawing. It cost only 10RM for adult and kids are free. Its located on top the Penang Hill.

This is basically a souvenir shop with an entry fee. What else can the dim witted traveller be scalped for? Don't bother.
