  • Very informative museum, especially if you are into SEA/Chinese history. I easily spent 2 hours here. The RM10 entrance fee was well worth it!
  • Brace yourself, history lovers. Another great museum has been discovered in Melaka. Drop by the museum if you are in Melaka later.
  • Very informative muzium & having good collection of cheng Ho history
  • Indeed, the museum for history buffs, you have to pay entrance fee, and then inside. Watch the 15 minutes documentary about the voyages of Ming dynasty Cheng Ho, thereafter at your pleasure to view the artefacts and coming with it history. At least 45 minutes if you don't rush to understand the underpinning trade and cultural facts of Malacca.
  • Wonderful museum that has many beautiful artifacts and gives a lot of information about Chinese explorers and maritime trade. A "must visit" site !!!

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.
