Penang Museum & Art Gallery is set on the junction of Lebuh Farquhar and Lebuh Light in Georgetown. Established in 1821, it houses national and state treasures that include a collection of Baba Nyonya porcelain, furniture, jewellery and costumes as well as eight oil paintings by Captain Robert Smith.

It is billed as one of the country’s best presented museums, and can be loosely divided into two sections: the permanent and temporary exhibit. The permanent exhibit has galleries dedicated to Penang’s historical communities, and certain Penang historical events. The first English language public school in the east, which was established in 1816, used to be set in this building.
