Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum, Melaka

(340+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Stop by Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum for a chance to board a replica of a Portuguese sailing ship and experience a taste of life at sea in the 16th century. Named after the ship it displays, this museum allows visitors to discover the history of sea travel in the region through numerous artworks and maritime artifacts. Pick up an audio guide at the entrance or wander at your own pace, reading the provided information signs. The original version of the ship exhibited here was the largest carrack ever built at the time of its completion. After serving for 9 years--a remarkably long lifetime for a vessel of that period--the ship and its hoard of treasures sank during a storm. By using our Melaka family vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum and other attractions in Melaka.

  • The boat is said to be replica of a real one, however it's so from the exterior only. The interior itself doesn't have much to do with a real ship, it's used as a museum but not interesting by itself....  more »

  • It's an amazing place with plenty of interesting exhibited stuffs. Don't miss it if you are in Malacca! The entrance fee is reasonable.
  • Good place to learn history but ticket not so cheap for foreigner.
  • Cool ship museum, interesting ship building content and history on display.
  • 太热了,热到快窒息。但是也不错。
