Made in Penang Interactive 3D Museum @ Malaysia

DSC_5841
The Made in Penang Interactive 3D Museum is more than the sheer fun of posing with trick art or 3D murals.  With all the artworks done by Penang artists (and hence the name), the museum has combined fun, culture and history of Penang into intriguing displays that allows you to have a quick and easy understanding of Penang.  Essentially, it’s Penang in a nutshell, where you explore 5 different sections of the museum including   1.  Great Wall of Penang, 2.  Miniature Local Trades, 3.  Miniature Weld Quay, 4.  Trick Art Gallery and 5.  Interactive Theater.  (P.S.

While I just finished writing about the Venetian Glass Museum @ Hakone, Japan, some of the photos match perfectly with this week’s a word a week challenge – Orange.  The photos here are exhibits from the museum and quite a few of them are orange. For the rest of the exhibits, they glow with an orange hue as the museum uses orange lighting  My favorite exhibit is the illuminating glass egg.
