“Islam 101”

The Melaka Islamic Museum
Ranked #84 of 130 things to do in Melaka
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 November 2014 via mobile

This museum is housed in an old building that once was home to the Melaka Islamic Council. The burgundy-color building is two levels high situated on a raised, tiered foundation - most impressive. For someone who is not too familiar with Islam this was the perfect museum for me to get a brief overview of the religion, its teachings and its practices. There was a section devoted to the history of Islam in conjunction with other world religions. I quite enjoyed some of the newspaper clippings, especially the one about some of the largest/most beautiful mosques in the world. There are numerous displays that showcase clothing, daggers, jewelry, books (Qur'ans), photos, etc. The caretaker is a nice man who let me stay under the overhang during a rainstorm for more than half an hour - after the museum closed.

Was great to be able to walk into a 400 year-old building and look around. It was once the Dutch officers quarters.

As a museum though, not as impressive.

I was just happy to have a walk through such an old and historic building.

The Melaka Islamic Museum is an interesting museum but I would say it could do with more exhibition or relics.
