Take your shoes off and leave them by the entrance as you enter the reproduced Malacca Sultanate Palace, which explains the history of the Sultanate before the explorers arrived.

Very informative museum with historical artifacts and drawings. Entrance fee of RM3 only for Malaysian visitor. Worth a visit definitely!!! Witness the greatness of the old Malacca King and the legacy of Kesultanan Melayu Melaka from this trip

Accidental stroll visit to the Palace. Need entrance fees but really know more about Melaka. Will need around an hour to go through the place. Some souvenirs sold outside the place.

Even is replica, built with new wood, it's good to visit. If you are into history, you can learn a lot. Costumes are nice. So it's garden.

someone imagined the sultan lived in a great big teak palace and built a replica, a bad replica. This is not well built and frankly I felt I had wasted 30 minutes of my life visiting it.

A visit gives you a historical view of buildings for a sultan and also a view of life in Melaka during many years and the importance of Melaka.

Visited here and got a really good background into the founding of Malacca and Malaysia. Well worth a visit.
