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.

I went here expecting more since I've seen the huge on in Taiwan and other sites like this. This was just a small room with pictures/information posted on the walls. There isnt really any real artifacts of the time etc. Thank goodness its cheap. Something like 5 RM.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Sun Yat Sen museum. The guide, Alwyn, explained the history of the famous revolutionary in a fascinating way and the information boards were helpful too. I took plenty of amazing pictures in the open airwell which has been tastefully decorated with ornate furniture and plants. I felt like I got to know a little more about Southeast Asia in a cultural and historical context. Highly recommend to visit and try the free teas and drinks.

I would recommend those who like history, to go and visit this place as it is very informative. The staffs were so friendly and nice. They are willing to explain to you if you have any doubt about the history. From this place, you can know more about sun yat sen and what he had been done in penang.
