    Penang Wonderfood Museum offers visitors a kitsch, kooky and in-depth look at the city’s unique food culture with larger-than-life displays of Malaysian dishes. Set within a 1940s colonial building in Georgetown, the museum is divided into three galleries called Info Zone, Wow Zone, and Educational Zone. All of the hyper-realistic models are handcrafted by the museum’s owner, Sean Lao who utilises food replication techniques from Japan.

  • The first section showcases over 100 types of popular street foods and traditional delicacies of the Malays, Indians, Chinese, and Perakanan, all of which are displayed in individual glass cases. Info Zone also features miniature displays of how the locals eat on a typical day, including breakfast at a roadside nasi lemak stall, Chinese-style porridge for lunch, followed by roti canai and teh tarik at a mamak stall.

    Penang Wonderfood Museum’s giant replica food section in the Wow Zone proves to be a big hit amongst locals and tourists alike. Visitors can pose beside massive models of Penang delicacies such as cendol, laksa, curry mee, rojak, char kuey teow, and ais kacang.

    The museum also educates the public on how certain dining choices can have negative impact on the environment. Within the Education Zone, there’s a display of a wedding banquet table that’s scattered with models of bloodied sharks to highlight the inhumane process of producing shark fin soup.

    Set along Lebuh Pantai, Penang Wonderfood Museum is a five-minute walk from Queen Victoria Memorial Clocktower Penang. The entrance fee for foreign visitors is RM25 for adults and RM15 for children, while locals (with MyKad identifications) are required to pay RM15 and RM10 respectively.
