We are staying nearby, so lucky us to be the 1st group to visit this place. So we got the luxury of time to take photos at our own pace. Would have to leave our footwear in a locker at the entrance before entering. Literally a house which have been build in a upside down manner. And there are station... More

With having not much expectation that this was just going to be another walk through and to look at things museum, It was totally the opposite, It's a must thing to do if your in Georgetown, the staff involve you in the displays and remember to take a camera, you will have a great time with many laughs with the...

Fun and interesting, but due to the long queues we were all forced to be very quick. It's like snap, done, ok move on to the next room please! You don't get to stay in the room to take a good look at the displays. The admission fee of RM27 is very pricey.

It's alright for no more than half and hour...staff are eager and helpful. If you need to duck in somewhere to get out of the sun this is the place for you.

Passed by this quaint museum while on our way for Dim Sum around the corner. Decided to visit it since it was walking distance to our restaurant. It is very unique as everything is set upside down (as the name implies) and this includes the cashier counter outside! The entire setup downstairs is like a typical nyonya home but with... More

Interesting place but wont last an hour..prob only 30minutes. A few rooms..perhaps should called upside down house instead of museum cos its not that big. Paid rm27 per pax. Once is good enough. Been there, done that.

It's quite similar to Singapore version of trick eyes museum. You will need to take off your shoes before entering the museum. Total duration taken not more than 30 min.

A great fun way to pass an hour. The staff are great with their know how to get a good snap. Why you can't leave your bag in the shoe locker I don't know. The result is inside bags are all over the place or you have pictures taken with your bag that spoils the effect. Only a minor criticism... More
