A visit to this restored shop-house is a must after the tat of Jonkers Street and the incessant noise. The restored shop-house has been restored without being embellished and up-dated. The guide was an expert on the history of the place and was most interesting.

There is not much to see in the house, but the staff was very informative. So if you are interested in the house or architecture in Malacca, it is a good idea to talk with him. You can take as many pictures as you want. Admission is free, but you can donate if you like.

From the outside, it is easy to miss this place. It opens at 11am and a wonderful man who goes by the name of Mr.Goh has given us a very nice tour around this ancient building which has been painstakingly restored. This place is recommended for everybody who is a Malaysian (and non-Malaysians too!). Its hard for us kids to... More

Visit first N°8 Heeren Street to get a comprehensive understanding of the house layout. Other houses offer more refined interiors and wealth but the beauty of the way of life is N°8 Heeren Street.

My friend and I happened upon this house while wandering through Melaka and decided to go in because I'd read something about it. There is no entrance fee and the staff is extremely welcoming and eager to share their story. One of them sat with us in the courtyard to tell us stories about the history of Melaka and the... More
