A restored Portuguese ship called Flora de la Mar makes for an impressive museum; Melaka’s colorful seafaring history is tastefully displayed within.

Within is a museum telling you a lot about the colonial times. The Portuguese, The Dutch and the Englsih "took care"for Malacca until independence after 1950. The museum is really worth a visit too with nice presentations of the colonial era

This is a classic extra, it's only ten rm to go in so no need to fuss about the price. There is a pleasant hour of wander around but not something I would plan for and put on a must do list.

We visited Malacca because we were interested in the layers of history and cultures, and this museum is a good place to learn more about that. The museum is housed in a replica Portuguese ship, containing layers of history on the different levels (which you...More
