This museum was next door to our hotel. It has an amazing collection of old gems and gold and furniture. A very impressive collection from several Baba and Nyonya families.

Zoe has explained well about the history of baba nyonya interestingly. It is humourous and fun throughout the tour. Will surely recommend others to join the tour within first day in melaka as it will make your whole trip better with more understanding.
