About
A museum featuring 50s to 70s old trades including old traditional chinese medicine shop, the red, blue and white pole barber shop, a go-go era tailor shop, village style sundry shop and an old tricycle delivery transportation of Rothmans, etc. It is very entertaining and also educational.

A place to soak in the nostalgic vibe of life in the 50s to 70s, with tonnes of items on display in settings such as a home, kitchen, medicine hall and hair salon. For visitors who grew up in Malaysia and Singapore during this period, some items are sure to evoke memories! Visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want and take photos to their hearts' content.

Wonderful experience
Feb 2020 • Family
I took my four year old son here after a chance meeting with Mr. Tih the previous afternoon in a nearby gallery. The museum is compact but the space is used very intelligently and the exhibits are really interesting. Mister Tih has a real passion for Melaka and his knowledge is both deep and wide, furthermore he is such a generous host by taking the extra time with my son. I will never forget the hour or so I spent here, especially the time with the wonderful Mr Tih.

An insightful experience

Very insightful experience about Melacca's history during the times when other countries such as Holland and United Kingdom came and colonised Malaysia. Not only do you get to see vintage objects but you're told about some there history by Mr.Teh.

Too many museums around Malacca central district. The youth art museum has too many paintings done by children of all ages. There is a customs museum near that museum too will attract tourists.

Unique experience thanks to the amazing mister Tih

The museum is very charming. The enormous amounts of interesting antiques is complemented with the passion of mister Tih who manages the museum. Take some time to have a lengthy conversation with him, it's definitely worth it!

Stepping back in time!
Jun 2019 • Solo
Stepping into this museum is like stepping back in time, when life was much simpler, to see how people lived in the past. A very impressive museum with many artefacts collected by the owner and curator, spread out over two floors. The museum is split up into various sections, for example tailor's shop, tea shop, hair salon, cinema, chinese medicine shop, and many more! Each section has been beautifully arranged with artefacts relevant to the theme. They have been carefully thought out and displayed. The main highlight of the museum however is Mr Tih, the curator of the museum. He has a deep passion for history and culture, and would share with you his knowledge and wisdom, along with answering any questions you might have on the exhibits. Still a relatively new museum in Melaka, so would highly recommend for everyone to visit, to support such a wonderful effort to preserve history for generations to come.

Mr Tih will not disappoint
Jun 2019 • Solo
I met Mr Tih during the day whilst walking around (he actually stopped me from passing out) so thought id pay his museum a visit. The museum is a worthwhile attraction in itself, but Mr Tih adds to even more. Fascinating stories about the history, culture and way of life.
