Penang State GalleryPenang State Gallery (9 November, 2017)

Penang State Gallery is a gallery that showcases all of Penang's state icons - its landmarks, culture and culinary heritage. It is located on Level 3 of The TOP, at Komtar, Penang, and is located right behind Market Food Street.

Anything that makes Penang proud is represented here. The gallery is presented section by section, beginning with a three-dimensional map of Penang State. Next, is the three-dimensional mock-up of George Town, with the surrounding walls showing the date of completion for some of its most iconic buildings.

The Penang Bridge, once the longest bridge in the country, and home to the Penang International Bridge Marathon, gets pride of place with a giant mock up, complete with thousands of minute runners.

Penang is often regarded as Malaysia's food destination, and this is showcased in the one section, alongside the items associated with its Baba Nyonya culture. There is also a diorama of a George Town townhouse, as it appears in the present day.

Let me show you the gallery in pictures here.
