  • A decent spot for art exhibition or other related events except lack of lift or escalator for disabled person's or wheelchair access entrance

  • Tang Hon Yin Retrospective

  • Aktif sekali mengadakan kegiatan seni rupa di Penang. Di sini kita dapat melihat perkembangan seni rupa Penang dan bahkan (secara samar-samar) Malaysia. Hanya saja fasilitasnya masih kurang lengkap jika dibandingkan dengan Galeri Nasional Indonesia di Jakarta.
