Here we are in Malaysia enjoying an upside down view of a windmill in Mykonos, Greece!
Upside Down Museum -- Penang
Sometimes you just need a break from temples and historic sites, and Penang's Upside Down Museum is the perfect antidote. "Museum" is really a misnomer here. This is a hands-on homage to silliness that lets you take mind- bending photos that make for fun online posts.
We found this to be an entertaining and quick visit as plentiful staff are on hand to show you how to pose and take pictures for you. You go from room to room and a staff member snaps one or two photos. Then it’s on to the next room. Of course all the furniture and decor are nailed upside down or sideways, so when you invert your digital photo it looks like you’re hanging off the ceiling or walls. The staff will even take videos of you doing pushups on the ceiling or making impossible jumps Spiderman fashion from one wall to another.
Our visit only took us half an hour because we arrived late in the day when crowds were light. We suggest going early or late for this reason. Cost is RM 25 each (~$6) which is steep by Malaysian standards but affordable for tourists looking for something different to do. An added bonus is the air conditioning, which makes it a pleasant place to visit on a hot day. (And most days are hot in Malaysia, let me tell you.)
These photos really don't require captions so just enjoy. And remember when you travel to let yourself rediscover the kid inside you who just wants to come out and play!
