Wonderfood Museum Penang

49, Lebuh Pantai, George Town, Penang, 10200

The Basics

The Wonderfood Museum displays detailed, Japanese-inspired food models. Items such as giant cendol desserts are perfect for selfies, while other displays, such as one that shows how food looks to the color blind, will get you thinking about food in a new way. Most travelers visit the Wonderfood Museum independently, while sightseeing around the city on foot or as a stop on the hop-on-hop-off-bus tour.

When to Get There

The Wonderfood Museum is open every day from morning until early evening. If you don’t know much about Penang or Malaysian food and want to learn about it before diving into the street-food scene, this is a good place to go for inspiration near the beginning of your stay. Weekends mean bigger crowds and longer wait times to take photos.

Georgetown’s Street Art

Keep your eyes peeled as you walk the backstreets of Georgetown, famous for its street art. Many of the neighborhood’s murals are designed so that you can pose with them, and some cleverly utilize the building elements they’re painted onto, such as a girl doing a backbend over a doorway. Maps are available from tourist offices, but it can be fun just to wander and see what you stumble across.
