Not much to see.

When we arrive there, it is close so we go around nearby and not really a interesting place. But surrounding area has a lot more for sightseeing.

Just a quick passing by photo opportunity but it is a really well made replica of the real ship and is made to scale.

This is a place that is not recommended as its overpriced and nothing is in any way authentic. Nothing to see inside and is basically a poor photo op.

It was heritage site. I love some places like this, not so noisy. Just relax, walking around, tasting foods and get the stories about. I do not like much other destination in Malaysia but Melaka is recommended to visit. I did a day tour around the city.

The boat is said to be replica of a real one, however it's so from the exterior only. The interior itself doesn't have much to do with a real ship, it's used as a museum but not interesting by itself. Not worth of the visit if your primary aim is to see how the interior of the real ship would... More

Enjoyed going into this replica. Very nice that it was built in this location so you can enjoy it. The boat is the actual museum so it is cool. The information given in this museum isn't too accurate though and it is like all museums in Malaysia pushing the Muslim ideology.

Nothing much here, besides some history and the replica ship. Kids will love the ship as they get to climb up and down it but inside, there isn't much to it. The inside is air-conditioned so it makes a good respite from the heat. It is not weelchair or stroller accessible so take note before going.
