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.

It was a nice and informative experience but generally wasn't that impressive. Visit the place if you're into jewelry.

This is big collection of intricate Nonya jewellery that the ladies of old used to wear on an everyday basis. The workmanship is superb! I enjoyed admiring each piece. Photography is allowed too!

They also have a collection of beaded and embroidered shoes, which are exquisite!

This place is a must-see for those who appreciate fine handcrafted pieces of art.
