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. Since it was just me on the tour, I could ask all kind of questions about Baba/Nyonya and their cultures.

I have found most Malaysian museums to be lacking in exhibits and with too much text-based information. Fortunately, the jewellery museum isn’t one of these! It was full of interesting artefacts and the young guide was really interesting. Best by far!..and allowed to take photos, too.

Wonderfully preserved and presented. Nice welcome and guided tour. Compared to the neighboring Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum, the Jewelry Museum is warmer as the house is still inhabited. And the jewel collection is unique in town. But the later museum offer bigger display of Pernakan interior design. Both are worth visiting. That is what I would recommend if you are interested in Melaka and the Peranakan culture.

Although pitched as a jewellery museum, this is only part of the treasures inside as the house which is complete with many original furnishings and family detail from the mid-20th century. The young guide we had was exceptional, very knowledgeable about the house, artifacts and decor which was imparted in a pleasant and approachable manner. She was also happy to say when she didn’t know something, which was refreshing. Other highlights were the fact you could take pictures and we were allowed to linger long after the tour to take in the atmosphere. There is a somewhat similar museum in the same street, but this one is much better being less pretentious and more approachable. Definitely worth a visit!
