We went btw on this hidden museum, on the second floor of a durian shop. The attebdant there gave us a full explanation of the most interesting artifacts on the museum, and it was certainly very impressive. A hidden pearl in penang!

Unless you're a camera fan, I wouldn't spend my money on this place. There really isn't much there. It's more of a "one time, done and over with" type of thing.
