P. Ramlee House

By:

P. Ramlee’s House

Situated at No. 4A, Jalan P. Ramlee Pulau Pinang is the birthplace of the late P. Ramlee who is Malaysia’s foremost entertainer. Originally built in 1926 by his father and his uncle, Rejab bin Hussein. The house has been repaired by his uncle during the Japanese Occupation and once again in 1948. Today the house has been renovated and preserved for the third time by the National Archives of Malaysia. The house features the main living areas and also the life history of the late singer, actor, composer and film director.

 

The conservation project on P.

Ramlee's House is an extension of the P. Ramlee Memorial in
Kuala Lumpur. It is also the government's effort in preserving the memory of P. Ramlee as Malaysia's leading artiste. The P. Ramlee Memorial Committee’s meeting on 22 November 1988 decided that his house should be restored and preserved. The house has undergone repairs and conservation, and hopefully it will become an historic place for visitors who wish to remember the great artiste himself. It also stands as a symbol of honour from the government in commemoration of the deeds of a great artiste to the nation.

The house has been carefully furnished, in order to present the likeness of the original setting that prevailed during the period of his youth. Various archival materials and items which relate to his early life are also on display.

The various exhibits include his personal memorabilia and also items belonging to his family.
