Explore the many rooms of Malacca Sultanate Palace, where period artifacts and dioramas bring to life the history of the region and the culture of the 15th-century sultanate. The museum occupies a modern reconstruction of the original palace, built using information and data from the Malay Annals--a romanticized history of the sultanate, considered one of the finest works of literature in the Malay language. Admire ornate furniture and period clothing, and inspect antique weapons, jewelry, and artworks. Round off your museum visit with a stroll through the royal gardens, filled with flowers and fishponds.

  • A must visit museum to better understand the history of Malacca. The building is obviously a replica, with historical displays inside.  more »
  • Building looked really interesting, but the internal exhibits are badly done and the English text accompanying the various scenes or pictures is so badly written as to make little sense.  more »
  • Very interesting to know and take photos. There is also a band on the outside that plays traditional music.
