The Penang House of Music is an experience for visitors of all ages.


Immerse yourself in the forgotten musical heritage of Penang with exhibits and interactive features, with a spotlight on the traditional music of Penang’s diverse communities; the defining period of the 1930s to the 1970s; as well as musical icons that have shaped the music of Penang and Malaysia.


The guided tour takes only an hour but you are encouraged to spend as much time as you like lingering over the exhibits, playing with the musical instruments, and enjoying our many interactive features like the Potehi puppets, the Virtual Reality room, the Listening Chair, the Listening Dome, the Radio Room, and the Cinema Room.


For real history buffs, our Resource Centre is a treasure trove of gems and relics from the past that will whet your appetite for more.

RM10 entry per person / per valid APMG2018 accreditation pass.
