  • Pretty neat antique collection. I like the accessories collection they have. The furniture arrangement can be improve. Some items looks dusty which doesn't look appealing although I understand is a history museum. They allow phototaking and interaction with the object. Overall, is still a good museum. RM19 for adult and RM15 for students.
  • The entrance fee included tour guide service. Wendy is very knowledgeable, friendly and homorous. All the lady staffs are friendly. We learned not only straits Chinese jewellery, but also Baba Nyoya culture, tradition, history and more. Photography is allowed.
  • Good museum with good tour guide, Wendy. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and homorous. We learned not only straits Chinese jewellery, but also Baba Nyoya culture, tradition, history and more. It's probably the best museum in Malacca.
  • It's more than a jewelry museum!!! The house is more 150 years' old, belongs to a baba who was a lowyer before. The tour guide is really good, learned a lot of culture and history of the baba and nyonya.
  • The best museum I have seen. Good tour guide. Worth the price. Learned the history of BABANoyaya culture and life style . Love the jewellery areas. So much to learn and rich culture. Don't miss to visit this museum if you are in Melaka area.
