Penang House of Music reviews
The Penang House of Music was set up to display the history of Malaysia's music scene. The people working here really knew their stuff. Firstly, we were taken through the gallery which was arranged... more »
The tour. It's informative and fun, wouldn't have experienced it the same without tour guide. Elaine shared us a lot of stories where we wouldn't find it anywhere on the Internet about local music... more »
Very impressive museum with a free guided tour included in each ticket, even though I was just one person. The guide was very surprised when I told her I wasn't a musician and to be honest despite being very well done, there was less interest here for someone like me who's not super into music and instruments. But I'm still giving it 5 stars because it was a very high quality experience all around.
The best possible museum experience. It's interactive and interesting, you can try all the instruments, listen for all the music they tell you about. It has even a little library with all the resources about the Penang music. Also, guide was very vivid and charismatic, told us everything and even sang us a part of Chinese opera. A must go if you re interested in music at least a little bit.
