This museum is in the sprawling Behn-Meyer Building in Weld Quay near the ferry terminal. when you first walk-in you can see a mural 33m long and 10m high along the alleyway of the building.The mural depicts Weld Quay in the early 19th century when it was a bustling port used by the English and the Germans.
On the ground floor of the MIP is an exhibition of clay and plaster figurines that showcase the culture and history of Penang. There is also a 10m long model Weld Quay in the early 1900s.
It offers 34 giant 3D art pieces in the second floor that are not only creative but also tell stories about Penang lifestyle, culture and history.
Made In Penang Interactive Museum (MIPIM) is a first of its kind in Penang. In traditional museums, the exhibited pieces seem to depict a past that is long gone, a past in which the visitor is only - well - a visitor. MIPIM however, seeks to challenge the orthodox 'see, don't touch' notion of a museum, instead MIPIM generously ask you to 'come, be a part of Penang's history!'
