  • By far the best cultural visit in Melaka. The Cheng Ho portion of the visit is exceptional, including two incredible model representations of the fleet. But it's all the context which makes the visit....  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.
