    Beautifully kept Baba & Nyonya house from the Chan family. I would recommend all to visit and be immersed in their history. It’s amazing how well they’ve retained the home. We went before midday and didn’t have a tour guide - so maybe check when they provide guided tours as I feel this would’ve elevated the experience.

    Amazing atmosphere and Dutch culture
    Worth exploring if you are travelling to Melaka.
    Best part it’s in the center of the city so Melaka River, Church, Jonker Streets is few min walk only

    We took a detour to visit this place as we missed it the last time.

    We were shown around by the owner, Haji Ibrahim who is the descendent of the founder of this village. Lots of cool antiques to see. Entrance is free but donations are welcomed for the upkeep of the house.

    Bigger than expected and take you from his childhood all the way to his 7 voyages. All well explained.
    The only miss was a guide.
    Takes a few hours to read all the panels.
    Definitely worth a visit.

    You'll be able to pose for slightly distant selfies against the exterior of the ship, but they are reworking the interior so you can't go in. It's only 3 mins walk from the river cruise boarding area, so if you're killing time while waiting for sunset, go have a quick peep.

    Good place to spend some half an hour if you happen to be in Klebang or a real navy enthusiast.

    Kids will have a great time exploring the submarine and the two fighter jets on display.

    So much more than jewellery, there is something for everyone! You get to immerse yourself in the Baba Nyonya household, customs, marriage rites, ways of dress, and home life. Passionate and very knowledgable tour from Linda (in Cantonese), ever patient with my questions and she made it so fun. Highly recommend.

    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.

    Good assortment of artifacts from the Sultanate, Colonial up to Japanese Occupation. The place is under minor renovation when we went but still plenty to see.

    Its located at normal shop lot..Price was just okay..Maybe they would have extended the space of the place..We queued up for 45 minutes just to go in..Aft went in it was nt up to expected cos too small..Actually we thought it is a big place..But yet we managed to snap good pictures n kids enjoyed them self..The staff are very helpful too..Kids really loved this place cos it was a new experience for us..It was too crowded.Maybe because of school holidays..

    This is a nicely-sequenced exhibit that suffers from the universal Malaysian museum problem of poor lighting. With a facelift, it could be excellent. The real star is a room full of political cartoons from the 1950s, which really put a fresh and humorous perspective on Malaysia's independence.

    I suspect that the level of detail might be a bit much for foreign visitors who are completely fresh to the subject, but it's rewarding for Malaysians who know the basics already.
