Penang War Muesum, Batu Maung

The Penang War Museum (Muzium Perang Pulau Pinang) is located atop Bukit Batu Maung on the South-East of Penang island. Opened to the public in 2002, it was an original British military defence fortress built in the 1930s to protect the island from enemies in anticipation of World War II. RM15 for Malaysian and RM30 for foreigners.
Some real cannon bullets which was left over during the war. This place is quite big and may took you at least 2-3 hours to complete the tour.
Most of the things displayed here are real and very historical. To those who survived through the World War II will really bring back a lot of pain and unwanted memories.
Air Defense Turret to fight against the mighty Japanese air strike.This place is very quiet because not many people visit here everyday. Normally it is for the school activities or some people are here only for the paintball games only. Yes, they has a paintball field which is inside this Museum.
This is not the real atomic bomb but they are making something a replica of the real bomb which destroyed the entire city of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 
This is the anti submarines mine.
There are drenches or also known as fox holes here which they remain untouched to preserve the historical value.This place is a good educational place for our future children to understand the real history and slightly feel the pain and horror of war. 
This place really give the creeps out of me. Too quiet with very few visitors and some place they will play some sound effect of people screaming for pain and etc. Well, this place is really eerie. I cannot imagine if you make a tour at night here.
A lot of mosquitoes bite! You should spray the insect repellent which is available at the ticket counter before you enter.
Total Damage: RM30.00
Ambiance: 3/5
Service: 3/5
Freakout Level: 3/5
Recommended?: You just need to visit once only.
