Penang Tunnel Museum (Penang Time Tunnel)

Travelers looking for an easily accessible way to explore Penang’s much-storied history will find what they’re seeking at the Penang Tunnel Museum (Penang Time Tunnel). This unique interactive museum features 12 tunnels that cover periods of time between the early 1700s and the contemporary 21st century, which together tell the tale of this incredible place. Illustrated maps, photos, artifacts and indigenous artwork cover the walls of the museum’s galleries, and while adults will find detailed information about each of the exhibits, shorter (both in height and in length) versions of placards are available for the museum’s younger set, too.

Visitors say the Penang Tunnel Museum puts the country’s culture, history and architecture into context. Whether it’s learning about the 10-day riots in this now peaceful place or exploring the migration of its every shifting populations, Penang Time Tunnel helps create a fuller picture of local life for visitors who’ve spent time wandering the streets, exploring the shops and sampling local cuisine.

Easy way to see George Town highlights
This little tour gives you plenty of time to explore the highlights of George Town. You walk at your own pace. Our guide Mr Ong was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. He even showed us an extra sight not on the itinerary. Only wish the tour included visiting Fort Cornwallis.
