Step into the Penang State Museum compound and be greeted by a bronze statue of Penang's founding father, Captain Francis Light. Continue on through various galleries, all divided to reflect Penang's historical communities and its significant events, and marvel at an expansive collection of antique photographs, maps, historical documents, and Chinese furniture, among other relics. The Art Gallery on the first floor, home to traditional paintings by local artists, can be viewed for free. Visitors can also attend special exhibitions in the gallery throughout the year.
