PENANG has a new Roman Catholic museum which church authorities do not intend to turn into a tourist attraction but to let future generations know how the Church began in northern Peninsular Malaysia.

The two-storey museum is housed in the old Penang Bishop’s office on the grounds of the Church of the Assumption on Lebuh Farquhar – which in itself is a landmark in the Unesco World Heritage City and the Street of Harmony.
