The whole place was super cool - so big with a lot of details and figures to tell a story. This place also showed another side of Malacca than just the colonial style buildings. What I liked most is that they had put some work into telling the history about the place, so that you actually could try to imagine... More

This is a replica of the original palace. Exhibits include a mock up of the sultan and the hierarchy of a attendees in the meeting room, and the story of two warriors. Plenty of paintings to show the Malay life of the sultan 600 years ago. Also there is the garden to walk around.

A great place for learning Malacca History. Comfortable with air-conditioner, the collections also be maintained well. My favourite part of this palace is Balairung Seri (Audience Hall) which brought me like in that period, easy to understand and show how powerful the Malacca Sultanate in that era. I also love the architerture of this building.

Went here with my friends. Unguided tour but we managed. Interesting contents inside the Palace. Quite a vast place to explore. As you enter the vicinity, you're to take few photo shoots. You need to take off your shoes as you enter the Palace. Showcases include legend of Hang Tuah/Hang Jebat; old rules/regulations/laws of Melaka back in the old days;... More

This is a replica of the Sultanate Palace and is home to the Cultural Museum which celebrates the Malay side of the Malacca's history. So many different cultures had influence on Melacca, so it was good to see the Malay history. You wander around the rooms and see many life size models of what life was like. At one end... More

A replica of a palace that the historic sultanate might have used. The building itself is incredible, and the inside includes a museum featuring dioramas of scenes from Melaka court life and beautiful paintings of scenes from Melaka legend.

Small museum. Interesting for a short walk through. Nothing too impressive. The pictures do reveal some cultural aspects. I guess it should be included in a day’s visit of the city. Practical notes: Shoes must be taken off to go inside. The air-condition is very welcome during a day out in Malacca

This is a nice replica of an old sultan's palace. The architecture is very nice. By visiting this museum you will have an understanding of the root of this city and this nation. There are many figurines and artifacts to look and study. They even have a reading corner and books for sale. It is partially air conditioned and you... More
