In 1962, action was taken by the State Government to secure a suitable place to house the state museum and art gallery. The acquisition of the present building, which once housed the Penang Free School (1821 – 1927) and then the Hutchings School (1928 – 1960) was inspired by the late Y.T.M. Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj (Malaysia's Prime Minister) who wished to preserve this dignified old building where he and many leading citizens had been pupils. On 10 July 1963, the State Government formed the first Committee comprising officers and representatives of various interests under the chairmanship of the State Secretary, Encik Abu Hassan Abdullah, to discuss the setting up of a Museum & Art Gallery. The outcome was the formation of a Working Committee under Miss Nicol-Smith, Senior Lecturer in English at Malayan Teachers’ college and who have had some experience as a Museum Curator before. After three meetings, this Working Committee presented on 29 Oct 1963, recommendations to the State Government which accepted in toto on 24 Feb 1964, the setting up of a Museum and Art Gallery proper. - Text from Penang State Museum official website
