Lots to see inside. Architecture of the place itself is interesting. However, some of the exhibits are a bit old and dusty.

This is a nice place to visit and doesn't cost a lot, 5 ringgit There is a LOT of information in there, too much at times. The displays in the side corridors and upstairs, particularly the costumes, were the most interesting part for us

A must visit museum to better understand the history of Malacca. The building is obviously a replica, with historical displays inside.

Building looked really interesting, but the internal exhibits are badly done and the English text accompanying the various scenes or pictures is so badly written as to make little sense.

For an admission fee of MYR5, this museum is really good value! Although the building is not original, it is great for photos for its elegance and beauty. As a museum, the interior offers much to see too. Highly recommended!

The gardens and the building deserve to be seen. But the exhibition inside is not only dusty and aging badly, it's a collection of dressed-up creepy mannequins with staged historical scenes... a little sad actually.
