Penang War Museum
Saturday morning I went with a group of English students to an outdoor war museum in Batu Maung. This was a base camp used by the British during WWII, it was later taken over by the Chinese.
We saw were prisoners were kept, toucher chambers, ammunition rooms, meeting rooms, we even climbed through underground tunnels that were used as escape exits (top picture).
The museum was all outdoors, and no one has tried to recreate any of the scenes. The way I saw it was the way it was in 1939.
