Pinaon Time Tunnel

Instead of exploring more in the grounds of Cornwallis, we decided to look for a museum. Pinaon is a private history museum. By the way, Cornwallis is like Intramuros however they differ in location. This one's location near the sea.

Jr is interested in museums. I not always in a mood for History but he is. Very educational for children and students. This time tunnel recounts its history putting a darkened hallway with its time tables, life-sized human sculptures and dioramas. The human sculptures depicts early fashion statements, traditional crafts, and daily labors.

Amazed but at the same time ashamed of the photos I took, they're all out of focus!

I am amazed of the dioramas, small sculptured human forms inside a plastic material see-through box. People miniature as to what I thought it was called. It exhibits early labors of the people of Penang especially pre-war. Penang was a British settlement of the Prince of Wales. On one of its corners, there was a TV screen showing a documentary of the war against the Japanese troops dropping the bomb in the Island decades ago. Quite the same feeling when you see those black and white movies of war. I am not a fan of old films but I know how to pay attention, sometimes. :D

As I have observed, the fusion of culture here reflects just like of Singapore, Chinese, Indian and Malay.

As an added extension of the museum they also have a trick-eye paintings on the walls. If you enjoy photo sessions making a fool out of yourselves then you will definitely enjoy this attraction just like we did!
