Not too shabby. Very informative. It'd be better if they have a larger print of English translation. Lost one star due to not being accessible to wheelchair and stroller users, and it was very hot inside.

Frankly I didn't expect much after I paid RM 10 to go in. It was worth every cent of it after going through the exhibits and recorded video. It pays to understand Mandarin as the English translation is just a summary, not a complete text...More

No concrete proof that Cheng Ho himself ever landed in Melaka. This museum is not authentic at all. Give it a miss. Save your money.

Some excellent exhibits and the background (Chinese emperors etc) was very useful. English labels leave a lot to be desired. This should shake European visitors' faith in what school history lessons taught them about 1492.
