Museum Hotel (GPS: 5.421781, 100.330791) is a boutique hotel in George Town, Penang. Tucked away at the far end of Jalan A.S, Mansoor (formerly Jalan Sekerat), it occupies a full row of nine double-storey terrace houses. These houses, which were originally residential, were built in the Straits Eclectic style and finished with Shanghai plaster. The upper level has full-length French windows with wooden shutters.
As its name suggests, Museum Hotel serves as a hotel, but also as a treasury of antiques. It has a private museum showcasing the treasures assembled by wealthy Straits Chinese. Among the items on display are the Nyonya ware, furniture, glass epergnes and sculptures.
