It looks as though it should be interesting and there was some bits but really a wast of time and money.

This is a replica of the original ship which was last seen in Aceh, Indonesia. The original one is said to bring loads of gold and other valuables. For those who loves history, this is a must-visit. Worth every pennies spent.

This Museum, situated in a replica ship is a must to see for anyone interested in Melakan History. A audio system is provided in the required language and is very informative. Wear good shoes as it takes a good while to see everything. Well done...More

Cool museum with ship like design. You can climb and enter the ship to see the exhibit provided. It's a must visit place as it's a one of a kind museum. You'll not regret it.

It's worth the money just because you get to climb about on a replica sailing ship, the fee also gets you entry to the next museum as well.

Even though it was just a replica, you can still in awe with how big the ship was. With entrance fee about MYR5.00 for adult, you can have a closer view of the ship. Pay this place a visit, and you sure will love it.

A single ticket allows you to visit both museums.A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours learning the history of Malacca and today's Royal Malaysian Navy

The ticket rates are quite expensive. once you go in, you realize you have to pay separately for audio guided tour.

We've stayed at Hallmark Crown. But since we both love to walk, we simply walk to it. But u can find a hotel near to Dataran Pahlawan area. I bet it much closer compared to ours. 😊
