Penang Time Tunnel

The Penang Time Tunnel is tucked in a row of shophouses along Jalan Green Hall in Georgetown. It focuses on the history of Penang Island, which dates back to about 400 years ago.

The Penang Time Tunnel has a spectacular display of 2D and 3D mural gallery, an anti-gravity photography section and an intriguing 3D Fluorescent Dream World. On the ground floor, visitors would initially pass eleven tunnels that track the history of Penang from 1592 up to 1786. On the first floor, there is the 3D Fluorescent Dream World, 3D mural gallery and the anti-gravity room.

I really love this place because it’s so may things to explore yet the price is so cheap!

The whole tour around the museum will take you about approximately 1 hour but if you are going to take perfect photos and when it is crowded, it would probably take you longer. I would say it is a place worth visiting especially you can enjoy the mural art indoors. =)
