This place consists of several parts of the display, and presented based on various types of jewelry that is well preserved to date. As a strategic location between countries in the past, and now, in this place proves several phases of life that evidenced by various kinds of artifacts, especially related to the side of jewelry, including the collection of clothing they have.

Both my mum and I enjoyed this visit. The cute & friendly tour guide did a good job. She explained well and details about Peranakan Culture to us. 2 thumbs up.

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.
