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.

  • 8 RM paid for 2 adults and 1 child to the Palace to visit. In each room are dolls with the costumes of then. Our daughter found this very nice to see because she could imagine what it looked like there used to be. In front of the Palace is still a well kept garden.

  • No nails, built with wooden pegs, this 3 storey replica palace showcases all of the history of Malacca - Hang Tuah and his legend, sultanate history, including arts and gifts. Talk a slow leisurely walk, see the displays as well read those informations to gasp the history of Malacca.

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.
