  • It's my second visit to the museum. Second floor is closed for visit & it's making us confuse the way to going out  more »
  • The building is located not far from the merdeka square Melaka town and adjacent to the Fort. In front of this building is often held events or festivals on certain days. It is a witness to the history of the independence of Malaysia.

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.
