This is another Peranakan-related Museums, but they are focusing on jewelry. The house is well-preserved. Even I went alone, they did not make me wait for a group and the tour guide was eager to inform me about the house. It was really fun experience....More

Excellently displayed and clearly related to the family who owned the house, with family-album photographs of the jewellery being worn, with very good guides who bring it to life.

This is the best museum in Melaka. The guide is so helpful and friendly. They allow you to take pictures inside the museum, as many pictures as you like.
