Going to The Owl Museum wasn't even on the plans.
My friend just wanted to show me Penang Hill. We decided to take the Penang Hill Railway. The cost of a return fare is RM30 for an adult foreigner. The ride to the top of the hill did not take long.
The cool environment was quite a refreshing experience. Despite the hot sun shining overhead, it felt pretty cool.
We walked around soaking in the surroundings - posh bungalows, disused cannon, and temple. After that, we went to get a drink. That's when we were accosted by people distributing pamphlets promoting 'The Owl Museum', while I was tucking into an ABC (shaved ice with flavored color syrups).
Admission was free on that day, since it was the sixth day of its opening. You can see pictures of some of the exhibits at http://goo.gl/oht4G. My friend especially loved the weighing scale with an owl-shaped head.
Don't forget to visit The Owl Museum when you are there.
