Good for someone who has minimal previous exposure to Islam. But hot and stuffy inside (fans and aircon not turned on), some exhibits very dusty too.

Besides the history of local Muslim in Melaka, i enjoyed its architecture pretty much. A line of windows on the first floor is a smart design to get the air to cool down the building.

Small building with a decent-sized collection of Islamic artifacts, and plenty of information about Islamic culture.
