Going to Georgetown, Penang with family or friends? Do you love having your photos taken? Then, I’d recommend the Upside Down Museum.
I was roaming around the streets of Georgetown, Penang for about two hours while on the lookout for street art when I found the sign that says “Upside Down Museum”. Since I also wanted a short break from walking under the heat of the sun, I considered getting in as a welcome idea.
As you may have guessed, the Upside Down Museum is a place where everything else is turned upside down. It’s a house with different rooms where one or two staff per room who will be happy to assist guests on how to pose. They will also volunteer to take the snaps for you.
I was traveling solo at that time. For someone who isn’t too comfortable having my solo picture taken, posing alone in a room felt awkward. However, after two or three shots, I somehow got the hang of it. This would be more enjoyable for me had I been posing with a group.
I came in at about 10 AM and there were only two small groups who are already inside. There was in fact more staff than guests. I could imagine the place will be quite small and packed during peak season.
Playing back the rotated version of the pictures they took of me wasn’t that bad after all. I would like to think they’re better than shameless selfies. Having said that, please forgive the below pictures.
