Penang is not so much about its beaches. Its these little gems that make it special. Knowing that this enterprising man lived in this house creates a real link with his world. worth allocating half a morning...reward yourself with coffee and croissant after the tour!

Small, bright and airy gallery in the old part of Penang designated a historic city of the Straits of Melaka. It brings back vague childhood stories told by the old ladies at home, except the exhibits are factual and put together in a way that tells a bigger story. A story of the early chinese settlers and the heritage they bring with them. Definitely recommend it!
