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.

We'd just spent some time in the Chinese Museum on a trip to Melbourne before visiting Georgetown so it was very interesting to get closer to modern Chinese history in this little house in Malaysia.

Worth a stop by to find out more about Sun Yat Sen. Interesting place to visit for a change. We had a good chat to understand the architecture and history of the house itself with the caretaker as well.

I remembered visiting this museum and noticing that one has to ring for an appointment to visit this historical venue. Now it appears that it is open for viewing with an appointed guide. Minimal cost to pay for an interesting visit.
