Cheap entrance fee & a very interesting insight into the history of the area. This building is a relatively recent reconstruction but has been sympathetically done. Only a short walk from Dutch Square & with attractive gardens. It's a quiet oasis right in the centre of Melaka. Steps up to access the front & steep door sills inside, may make... More

Cheap entrance fee for what it delivers. Check out the secret garden. The structure alone is worth the price of admission. A MUST see.

A historic place for you to take photo. However you can't enter without permission from the guards. Recommended to go in by tour.

apart from the nice external architecture the inside is rather boring. I asked a question to the staff and they were either not aware of a response or were not interested to give a response. Nevertheless a worth while visit for the fees

A must visit in a city full of museums and history. Displays are extensive with so much to see and enjoy. Traditional dress examples stick in my mind along with the stories and accompanyin dioramas. The building itself is beautiful, a perfect setting

A replica and was interestingly constructed without the use of a single nail. It showcases the history of the region. It appropriately holds galleries of the pre-colonial rule, a time when this was a very important seat of power for the entire Malaysian peninsula and surrounding area. The place has seven gallery rooms revealing what a Sultanate chamber meeting might... More
