Penang Museum: Art amidst Colonial History & Architecture

Square eyes peering into the darkness
Glowing white pillars lead to hundred year old shadows that paint the hallway black, until a faint light reveals a locked door
Reflection of history in contemporary art
A maternity hospital from 1915 - 1955, and home to various organisations over the past 50 years, the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital at 57 Macalister Road was recently restored to its original splendour, and opened this month as a new branch of the Penang state museum and art gallery.   

The museum is currently hosting an exhibition on Sun Yat Sen and Soong Ching Ling, which runs until February 17, 2011.  Opening hours are from 9am-5pm, Saturday-Thursday.  Admission is free.

If you are in the area, stop by for lunch at Mama's One Ton Mee on Lorong Susu.
