Penang Wonderfood Museum offers visitors a kitsch, kooky and in-depth look at the city’s unique food culture with larger than life displays of Malaysian dishes.
Set within a 1940s colonial building in Georgetown, the museum is divided into three galleries called Info Zone, Wow Zone, and Educational Zone. All of the hyper-realistic models are handcrafted by the museum’s owner, Sean Lao who utilises food replication techniques from Japan.
The first section showcases over 100 types of popular street foods and traditional delicacies of the Malaysian people.
Penang Wonderfood Museum’s giant replica food section in the Wow Zone proves to be a big hit amongst locals and tourists alike.
Set along Lebuh Pantai, Penang Wonderfood Museum is a five-minute walk from Queen Victoria Memorial Clocktower Penang. The entrance fee for foreign visitors is RM25 for adults and RM15 for children, while locals (with MyKad identifications) are required to pay RM15 and RM10 respectively.
Of all the mini-museums and fun-photo museums in Penang, this is the one to not skip. We went in with modest expectations and were blown away. It was fun and super informative and a great way to spend an hour in the city centre. Penang has incredible food and this will make you want to go out and eat it all!
I really want to commend the staff who were super cheerful and helpful and seemed honestly excited and happy to be there helping people learn about Penang's amazing food. The displays and written descriptions had a lot of effort and thought put in. They should be proud.
Get to learn about Malaysia's food heritage. Food replicas come in different sizes, some of the dishes are in really huge sizes.
Lots of photo-taking opportunities. A place not to miss if you are in Penang.
About Malaysia's food culture, play here and learn about
Penang, Malaysia has a "food" theme museum, which has been well received by tourists from all over the world, and has won many awards and high scores. What is the charm?
The first exhibition room, through a realistic model, allows everyone to quickly understand the local mainstream cuisine in Malaysia and intuitively understand the characteristics of Indian, Malay and Chinese cuisine.
The subsequent exhibition room zoom in the food, where you can take interesting photos.
In addition to taking pictures, in fact, this museum is also very meaningful, through the different artistic expressions of different themes and different ways, let everyone understand the importance of food in life. The ancient foods that have appeared and lost, the animals that are endangered by people moving to the table, and the world's most expensive food, the highest sugar, and so on. The staff at
is also very enthusiastic, will help to set up, and there are some interactive devices, which adds a lot of fun to the browsing process. Of course, at the end of the museum, there is also a mini store where you can buy food-related surroundings. The star film is very beautiful~

Penang is the best place to play in the brain--the most fun food museum to see here
Penang, which is the best city in my mind except for Jeju Island, which is a great example of the museum culture. There are more than 50 museums, large and small, all kinds of whimsy, brain holes have been opened to the extreme.
And this food food museum is one of the things I find very interesting. Because the cuisine of Penang is world-famous, the sands, the clams, the clams... the two slaps are not counted. This food madness is the food of Penang, which is presented by both large and small models. A great place to have fun and knowledge of science.
Play Raiders: The museum is divided into two layers, all of which are Malaysian specialties, all made into models, with a mini version in the showcase, and a magnified version for visitors. Taking a picture and taking a lot of photo props is definitely a place where you can shoot a lot of interesting photos with your brain wide open.
The second floor is about introducing food knowledge around the world, such as the world's most expensive food rankings, what are the most acidic, hottest, stinky, sweetest foods in the world, and We have some knowledge about food in our science, showing the calories of the snacks we usually eat in a figurative way, telling us to eat less junk food, and there is also a promenade that connects Penang from the past to the present. The history is presented one by one, very interesting, and also allows visitors to learn knowledge without knowing it.
