Stop by the E&O gallery at the hotel’s Victory Annexe, a joint project between the hotel and Think City Sdn Bhd under the George Town Grants Programme. You will be mesmerised by the intimate stories, classic photographs and ephemera, and actual antiques that have been kept carefully. The precious collection was built from loans and contributions by hotel guests, both local and foreign, who added to the wealth of information by sharing personal anecdotes and recollections. The quaint space has been maximised to showcase an experiential narrative that will take you back to the glory days of the Pearl of the Orient and the era of the Sarkies brothers.

After your Gallery visit, step over to the adjacent Emporium, the hotel’s souvenir outlet that carries an exciting array of gifts and collectibles, including one-of-a-kind products handcrafted by local artisans as well as a small but exquisite range featuring E&O’s trademark. Jewellery, bags, apparel, pewterware, shoes, whimsical toys, and Malaysian-themed designs make up the rest of the merchandise that will tempt you into a dose of retail therapy. Book lovers will be pleased with the volumes on offer such as Ilsa Sharp’s The E&O Hotel-Pearl of Penang, which chronicles and celebrates the hotel’s journey from 1885 to date.

Antiques and memorabilia at the E&O Gallery were donated by the hotel's guests, past and present
