A historic gem in the heart of the George Town world heritage site. The Sun Yat Sen Museum is a beautifully-preserved house museum in the multicultural George Town world heritage site. This historical house has a permanent exhibition on Sun Yat Sen's early revolutionary period in Penang when he planned a historic uprising on the cusp of the Chinese Revolution of 1911.

Entrance fee is RM5.00/person. History of Sun Yat Sen and his contributions are shown using timeline on the wall. Others are interesting vintage items and things from back in the days. They also have rooms that can be booked for stay-over.
