This Penang War Museum situated on Bukit Batu Maung was erected on the original defence complex built by British before World War II. It became a defence fort during the war.

Today, it is a sprawling historical complex exhibiting many war paraphernalias, and shows historical timelines of events.

This war museum is a dedication to those who have served and died, defending the country.

Remember to dress in light, cool clothing; wear comfy shoes; put on a dull coloured hat and be armed with a pair of binoculars, insect repellent, notebook and pen.
