Definitely for tourists only, this tiny museum is actually a Malaysian house showing how a typical Malaysian family lives.

Well preserved Malay house of old where we can learn culture and architural presentation of traditional Malay house. A very warm welcome when one visits the house which is privately run Living Museum....very educational and worth a visit...

非常推荐来马六甲的朋友来这里看看,位置就位于大华酒店的对面。附近是高档的住宅和商场,显得这里很特别。85岁的老奶奶热情的招待你进去参观她的住家,在这里可以看到他们的房间格局、装饰,他们以前生活会用的东西,以及感受这里时光静止般的安静。最后老奶奶会询问你是否要捐款给这里,我觉得无论这笔钱用来给她和家人作生活费还是用作继续保留这个地方,都很有必要,所以就捐献了10元。Highly recommended. I got a chance to see the special layout and unique decoration of an authentic Malay people's house.

This is an interesting place to visit. It gives you a good idea of the way the fisherman Melakans lived.

Don't be fooled by this being called a museum - you are being shown around someone's house. The lady we had was 85 and very sweet, but didn't speak loads of English. The house itself was very interesting though, but it did feel a bit...More

Walked down the river and passed this by chance - absolutely wonderful to see the traditional houses. This area is of course the upmarket version - still very worth to stop by when you stroll down the river!
