If you find yourself overwhelmed with where to start, here are some of the best spots worth seeing. 

Museums

Penang Island is a place that is rich culturally, and it is evident in the number of world-class museums and galleries found here. Each museum has a unique story to tell. Exploring and learning are great ways to learn more about the island and its history. 

  • Colonial Penang Museum: Culture vultures and enthusiasts will surely appreciate a visit to this museum, which gives a look into the history of Penang and what life was like during the British Colonial era. The museum was once the family home of rich merchants and is still largely preserved with the original furniture, art collections, interiors, and other personal effects. (Bag policy: Guests aren’t allowed to bring oversized bags inside the museum. Instead, leave your things with Bounce before your visit.)

  • Penang State Museum and Art Gallery: Established in 1821, this museum is one of Penang’s finest institutions and houses a collection of national treasures, artifacts, images, paintings, and other items that tell the story of how Penang developed over the years. (Bag policy: Large bags, backpacks, or luggage are prohibited inside the museum. An alternative is to leave your things at a Bounce location nearby.)

  • Wonderfood Museum: The first food museum in Penang, the Wonderfood Museum is truly a must-visit on the island. The museum opened its doors in 2015 and has since been a hit with both locals and tourists. Wonderfood has on display some of the local food in gigantic sizes and talks about the history of Penang’s cuisine. (Bag policy: The museum does not allow guests to carry big bags inside. What you can do is locate a Bounce partner and leave your things there.)
