This museum compound is dedicated to Malaysia’s biggest megastar, P Ramlee. Ramlee was particularly known for his singing; he also acted in and directed 66 films in his lifetime. Although visitors may not be familiar with his work, the grounds and displays are interesting, and there are a few kitschy souvenirs in the museum’s gift shop.

P Ramlee House is about 5km west of George Town; a taxi here will cost RM15.

P Ramlee’s music plays as a constant soundtrack throughout the compound, which consists of three zones: a performing arts centre, a small museum with artefacts and photos about P Ramlee’s life, and Ramlee’s birthplace, a humble, thoroughly restored kampung house built in 1926.
