Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum, Melaka

3.3
#4 of 23 in Museums in Melaka
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. Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Melaka Edition.

  • Chinese name called Maritime Museum the museum itself is a Portuguese-style three-masted sailing ship. Is situated in the Malacca River, from about 5-minute walk from the Red House in the Netherlands. Exhibition focuses on four major periods of Melaka (Sultan dynasty, the Portuguese colonial period, Dutch colonial, and modern), the general situation as well as a variety of marine and maritime technology related models and physical. Total visits should be 30-60 minutes. It's kind of fun, strongly recommended

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.
