Admire the eclectic and opulent artifacts the family collected from across the globe, and glimpse the richness of Peranakan culture in the architecture's combining of Chinese, Malay, and colonial British influences. Take a guided tour to learn about the dynastic family and the way their individual tastes shaped the house and its present-day appearance.

  • Just like to say that the dream more Mont. .. Museum collection in each one of the stuff than receiving inspiration on meaning and origins, history can hear an explanation about this detail. Sometimes when you drop by Jock (in the level, but also for a laugh;) boring anhassneyo; ... Oh one thing that never get pictures from inside a downer points to guess that

  • The space is super funny, as House is large, as not so much Museum... It is totally worth the guided tour, it costs the same and is explanatory and fun, start every hour on the dot.

  • Very pretty museum in an old colonial House. There is a lot of various things. There is a beautiful carved wooden staircase. A book in french to understand the different objects and different parts.

  • The tour was a really good choice when you visit the museum. But, you have to pay attention to the group tour schedule here. The tour guides are very friendly and will give you very informative information in the interesting way. A recommend place to go when you were in Malacca.
  • Great place to learn about chinese-malayan (keturunan) cultures & traditions. You can see the beauty of two traditions inculturation here. You will feel a rich old tradition ambience at the first step you enter this place. You can't take photos inside the museum but you can buy some souvenirs at the gift shop.
  • Beautiful piece of history. Everything is well explained. The guide is very funny and her english is very clear.
  • Very nice architecture. Simple history tour of baba nyonya culture. You can't take pictures in the museum.
  • Strange way of entering and paying - a lady talked to us through a cracked door. Money was collected by a lady just walking around in the lobby. Museum itself was very well kept and our tour guide was informative, funny, and spoke good English. Costs RM 16 for non-Malaysians for a 1 hour guided tour.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
