Architecture of Malaysia
Feb 2020
As the name of the museum suggests, this museum is dedicated to architecture with a special focus on the architecture of Malaysia. The museum is set over two floors with the first mainly historical development of architecture in Malaysian. The first floor also has a quaint section on indigenious beliefs related to the location the creation of buildings e.g. feng shui. The 2nd floor is more focused on the tools and materials of building, styles of buildings of the different states of Malaysia, plus modern architecture of Malaysia.

Some of the scale models of landmark buildings of Malaysia are just stunning and some of the detailed descriptions of traditional woodwork I found fascinating.

The entrance fee is reasonable, but is well worth the money if you’re interested in architecture or carpentry. The only downside is that the modern architecture section is very small. Some more information about iconic buildings of Malaysia such as Petronas Towers and National Mosque would’ve made the visit even better.

We went to this museum and were really amazed with the collection! There are scale models of different buildings in Melaka and even the building itself is a nice example of colonial architecture in Melaka. Really interesting and what´s more, free!

If you enjoy architecture this one is worth a visit. The building itself is worth a look and the displays have English commentary. There are some great old photos of various Malaysian buildings.

Beautiful and informative

One of the two free entrance museum downtown with the nearby Museum of Royal Malaysian Customs Department. And both are worth visiting! The museum of architecture is located in a beautiful historic house. It showcases the wide variety of construction styles not only in Malacca, but equally in Malaysia and…. the world (some universal architectural concepts). The information boards are captivating and supported with beautiful wood models, tools and illustrations. The content is so rich I was still learning after two visits. This experience perfectly complements the visit of the nearby History and Ethnography Museum and the Sultanate Palace.

Free or not free -- that is the question?

We came right before they were to close on a Wednesday afternoon. (4:30 or so. They close at 5:00 p.m.) We didn't have much time to take in the huge amount of information -- but it was a substantial and fascinating look at the major architecture trends throughout Malaysia with its different ethnic groups. I wish we had had more time to spend here! Quite fascinating. The staff that worked there were super inviting and nice.

There is RM3 admission fee to visit the museum. They display each ethnic architecture building in Malaysia. A good place to have an idea/ picture of Malaysian life style. Facilities need to be repaired & well maintained. Aircond is not functionning well at a few space in the museum. A bit warm

Supposed to be interesting but terrible!
May 2017 • Couples
As an architect myself, i was overexcited to enter the museum which occupies one of the original buildings by the Dutch, but we were rather disappointed. All displays and descriptions were too long, boring and distracting. Not well composed. Unwelcoming entrance & almost all interactive-displays were pinned-up with under maintenance signs during our visit. The interior is very gloomy, creepy and not as interesting as the History & Ethnography Museum. Should be improved.
