What a pitty! This pace needs to be revamped. Malacca's maritime history, as a unique hub in global trade over the course of many centuries deserves better than this!

Sound interesting in your guide book. However in reality it could have been a better tourist experience. Still interesting but could have been better illuminated. It might have been better having somebody dressed in pirates clothing explaining what you are looking at the various displays. Your entrance ticket also includes the Martine museum across the road which we went to.... More

Been there before and the third time was more awesome as they have opened a new museum nearby. The good thing about the ticket is that it is affordable, and it allows you to visit three spots including the Marine Museum.

Located only 10min on foot from the Red Square, we only went to the 'ship' section of the museum. Due to preserving the wood floors of the ship, shoes are to be removed prior to entering the air-conditioned interiors. Inside details the historic trades, wars and piracy events of Malacca's past. Despite the fact that it was a cool relief... More

The museum consists of three buildings with the highlight being the ship replica. As most Melaka museums you need to take your shoes off inside the exhibition (for no reason). The items on display are quite interesting if you are interested in marine life or in sea expeditions history. Overall, it's a nice attraction if you have time but not... More

It is a small space. However, the exhibits are well layout and will provide you with some easy to understand tour around the ship. My highlight of the trip there was taking some photos on top of the ship.
