Independence Memorial houses an interesting museum which deals with the history of Malacca and Malaysia from the Sultanate period in the 15th century up to independence in 1957. There are a lot of good displays with English and entrance is free.

We visited the place and there is no entry fee. Once inside, we saw manuscripts, video tapes, films and slides depicting events leading to Malaysia's independence in 1957. We shed tears when we saw Tuanku Abdul Rahman proclaimed the words 'Merdeka,Merdeka, Merdeka' at Merdeka Square.
