I'm a person who really appreciates museums, its like you're transported back in time. The collection were amazing, and true that students would benefit visiting this museum for zaman Kesultanan Melayu Melaka. There's even collection of royal ensemble of all the states. There's a certain magic which captivates guests in the museum. The architecture is amazing and beautiful.

The museum building is the most attractive thing. The garden surrounding the property is beautiful too. It's not very huge but still a very unique place to see. The ticket price very minimal so one must have a look at it.

Cheap entrance fee & a very interesting insight into the history of the area. This building is a relatively recent reconstruction but has been sympathetically done. Only a short walk from Dutch Square & with attractive gardens. It's a quiet oasis right in the centre of Melaka. Steps up to access the front & steep door sills inside, may make... More

Cheap entrance fee for what it delivers. Check out the secret garden. The structure alone is worth the price of admission. A MUST see.

A historic place for you to take photo. However you can't enter without permission from the guards. Recommended to go in by tour.

apart from the nice external architecture the inside is rather boring. I asked a question to the staff and they were either not aware of a response or were not interested to give a response. Nevertheless a worth while visit for the fees
