The gardens and the building deserve to be seen. But the exhibition inside is not only dusty and aging badly, it's a collection of dressed-up creepy mannequins with staged historical scenes... a little sad actually.

Malacca Sultanate Palace is situated next to the A Famosa Fort and is a reconstruction of the original palace which existed here in the time of the Sultanate in the 15th century. Good architectural details in the wooden structure and interesting to walk around.
