Wonderfood Museum, Penang

April 28th, 2018 · 2 Surrendered

Food! Who doesn’t love food? I personally really like things related to food. When I found out there’s a food museum in Penang, I decided to pay a visit to it.

Located at 49, Lebuh Pantai, George Town, 10200 George Town, Pulau Pinang. Entrance ticket is RM15/adult. You can get the ticket by clicking on this link.


Did you know that the food replicas found in The Borneo House Museum is also handcrafted by the same person who is from this museum?



The miniatures are so real! Very meticulously created! The actual size is smaller than what you see in the photo. I used macro mode for this.


The food replicas are amazing! Looked so real that many thought that the photo on the right, showcasing the Chinese New Year reunion dinner food are real when I posted it on my Instagram. People thought that I’m having these for my reunion dinner hahaha!! It’s such a grand affair but too bad it’s not my dinner.


If our food is colourful VS if our food is black & white. Mind you, the latter is not edited or using any camera filter, it is really black & white.


Spoilt food VS flying food.


This is where you can see giant replica of local food. Man… I just couldn’t take my eyes of all the food on display in this museum. While writing this, my stomach is grumbling…




These are just some of the giant replicas on display, you have to come here to see for yourself…


Aside from that, there are so much more to see. Can you see what is the photo on the left trying to portray? It’s using various food and cutlery to replicate the famous Mona Lisa drawing. Giant durian, mangosteen, and roti canai can also be found there.


There are many photo opportunities in the museum. Just have fun! It’s very educational as well because you can learn about various nutritional values and some facts about the food we eat.


Not only that, they also try to create awareness and educate the visitors of issues surrounding our lives related to food.

What you see here is just a tip of the iceberg. I highly recommend this place if you are to visit Penang. I could easily spend two hours in this museum admiring the replicas. Have a yummilicious visit!

    Very nice pictures and write-up . Do they should have recipes there ?
    Most of the traditional food at mall food courts are so terrible now I think we need to revive the authentic recipes.

    Hi EG, thanks for the complements. I don’t think I see any recipe there… Can’t expect too much from mall food court.
