  • 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.
