You can either gawk at the rather dilapidated, worn and tired looking exhibits such as rusted rifles, faded and peeling posters, or feel a tinge of sadness and grief as these remind you of the passage of time that perhaps failed to wash the pain of those who experienced the horrors of war. Urban legend has it that this place is haunted. That we're not sure. It was bright daylight when we were there, with a bunch of locals and school children there who are perhaps on a school excursion. We didn't dare to walk into tunnels or climb up ladders haha since the aura of the place does seem abit lingeringly haunting. It would have been better if there is a guided tour but we did not take the option. There is one old barrack showing the mock-up of a comfort house which if you look into the window, has a woman mannequin whose face is hidden by its long hair. I warned my husband that there is such a dummy in there before he looks in and scare the daylights of himself haha. A less popular place with tourists but you would see more locals.

I went with my friends for a mini school trip, the overall view was nice. I also learned a lot of history. Overall museum was kind of short, took us 45minutes - 1hour to walk the whole museum.

For folk, like me, with an interest in military history, this is a must visit. The fact that the Brits built it in 1930 - obviously at vast expense, with careful planning - is more important than the displays. The fact that there was a battle for it is a bonus.
The exhibits are a bit tired & the way finding a little difficult but highly recommended nevertheless.

I was very interested to see this place, to learn the history of the fort & about Penang's role in the war. However, I feel like I left knowing less than when I arrived.

The museum is in complete disrepair, signs have fallen down and faded so much you can't read them. Some displays are missing, and some displays have no descriptions or information at all.

There is no real route to take where you can see the history in consecutive order... its just random displays of random bits & pieces. It's sad to see such an important & interesting piece of history in such a state.

Don't Go.
Nothing of significance only concrete buildings and loads of mosquitos.

Nothing original in way of artifacts and no real organised route to take etc.

Average to very good is quite a large jump! This attraction is better than average but probably not quite very good…I would rate it good. However, it’s certainly worth visiting and shows the dark days in World War 2 when it became a prisoner of war camp controlled by the Japanese invaders of Penang Island. Some areas did seem rather neglected but overall, it was informative.
There are many steps so anyone with mobility problems would experience difficulty in seeing the whole area. The other big problem was the mosquitos so if visiting, make sure you take mosquito repellent with you.
It’s not the cheapest attraction in Penang…it cost 76MYR for 2persons. If you go by car, you have to pay extra. If you’ve no car, the bast way is by taxi.
There are many interesting artifacts on display along with some quite gruesome areas…the gallows and execution, by beheading area…maybe not for the faint hearted!
It doesn’t take all that long to wander around…probably about an hour and a half allowing for photo opportunities etc.
Worth visiting but don’t forget the mosquito repellents!

Had a great visit here. Spent about 2 hours there. If you have an interest in military matters worth a look. It is interesting in that all the gun emplacement and barracks and office areas are still there. Gave a good understanding of how the place worked. Was a bit hard to get a Grab there but relatively easy to get one back. Watch out for mosquitoes. Worth taking repellant.

Worth a visit especially if you like history. Had about 2 hours to wander around look at the exhibits and read the information. An interesting part of British and Malaysian history even though it is not that pleasant. Reports its haunted, I didn't feel anything unusual so don't let that put you off visiting. Bring mosquitoe repellent cause you are in the bush.

Very disappointing. Overpriced entry to overrated attraction. Could do with trimming some trees so that approaching Japanese warships can be seen and engaged.

After more than 50 years rediscovered in the jungle, the place looks like abandoned only yesterday. Fully intact, superbly restored, tip top maintained (not always a given in the country even with historic sites...) its a history lesson of WWII few people will know, as not the finest day for the British forces and the beginning of dark times of Japanese atrocities. But its important for everybody to know what happened, to know history and to avoid such terrible things to happen again, a theme of the place. Restored to detail and at quality levels un paralleled in Malaysia, to the man and his team who made it happen, and keep it so well in shape, a huge compliment.
