  • This is a privately owned museum with good collection of stuff related to Cheng Ho. Comes with a short movie screening. Rooms are spacious and cool.  more »
  • Good collection of artefacts related to Cheng Ho's several trips to South East Asia. I believe the owner is a Singaporean and the museum is his private collection. Good if you like this part of Melaka...  more »
  • Some interesting materials mixed-up with a lot of junk. Chen-Ho's expeditions deserve far better then this! Also, this is a high temperature (sweltering experience).  more »

  • Got to know more about Cheng Ho's history and his travels around the world. A nice stop while you are in Melaka.
  • It is educational to visit the museum to learn the early history of Gen Cheng Ho's visit to Melaka and the influence thereafter.
  • Interesting but messy museum.
  • Lots of fun learning about Admiral Cheng Ho.
  • Definitely worth a visit, especially for history lover.
