Penang War Museum

The Penang War Museum is a privately-run museum located on the hills above the fishing village of Batu Maung. The war museum is a monument to the mistake made by the British in thinking that the enemy would attack from the sea, and thus they constructed the bunkers and enforcement with cannons aimed to the sea. As it turned out, the Japanese invaded by land, coming down the Peninsula, and rendering the preparation moot.
