“A fair insight into Islam”

The Melaka Islamic Museum
Ranked #89 of 153 things to do in Melaka
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 January 2017

For a westerner who knows little about Islam, the museum provided a good insight into the history of Islam in Malaysia, and something of its culture. There's plenty so see and the entry price is small.

Small building with a decent-sized collection of Islamic artifacts, and plenty of information about Islamic culture. The artifacts themselves look very nice and cover a wide variety of mediums, from practical objects like teacups and vases to religious texts and similar items. The outer area is nicely landscaped too and is a good place to rest for a few minutes. While this museum isn't as large as some other Islamic museums in Malaysia (such as the huge one in Kuala Lumpur), it's still worth a look to those in the area who are interested in Islamic culture.

Provides a good amount of information about Islam, the history of Islam and Islam in Malaysia. A great deal to learn, I spent 2-3 hours inside.

Entrance is only 3 RM.
The few staff that were there were speaking very loud, but they will keep silent if you ask them to.

I definitely recommend visiting this museum.

Islamic things, but not really interesting. And not much too see either. I think it is a waste of time. The building is nice, though. It's catchy and red.
