The Diorama Gallery showcases various scenes of life in Penang in miniature dioramas. These are mersmerisingly detailed. They are sculptured by Khoo Chooi Hooi, who had made the Dioramas of Penang Scenes nine years before. The new dioramas range from the picture of a little Chinese boy having his hair cut by an Indian barber, to a sprawling panoramic view of the George Town Waterfront. Click the thumbnail below to view each of the dioramas exhibited.
The Penang 3D Gallery showcases three-dimensional wall and floor murals. Many of these feature Penang's iconic landmarks as well as historic figures.

I call this mural "Hangin' Around with Spider-Man". It is a 3-dimensional floor mural. Visitors can have themselves photographed as though they were hanging by the side of the clocktower, with Spider-Man perched on the cupola above.

There are four interactive kiosks at the Made In Penang museum. At two of these kiosks, you point your entrance ticket to the sensor, and it will project a three-dimensional image on the screen. The images are of Komtar and the Penang ferry. At the other two kiosks, you just need to stand near the screen, and you will see yourself wearing vivid coloured masks of Sichuanese opera.
