Vert decorative. Lots of mythical figures, animals, birds and flowers. A feast for the eyes! Be aware to dress appropriately respecting temple etiquette.

This is about a world known Chinese traveler Zheng he. Its quite big, and has displayed many interesting stuffs. No guided tour. Make sure to watch video about Zheng He in the museum first. Otherwise u cannot enjoy it well. Personally I felt bored after an hour

Glad I went. Had to take my shoes off. I found the history interesting. I don't remember what it cost. I found the way they built buildings also interesting. With the air vents.

I have read about Admiral Ho and was hoping for something more than this. The museum does have some interesting facts and models but overall it was a disappointment. The history if this Chinese admiral is so rich.

Good to learn about this great Ming dynasty explorer who made a stop in Malacca. I am a bit skeptical about the authenticity of some of the Ming porcelain and pottery inside. I do not see armed guards. These are worth many many millions if real.

While we didn't actually go up to the museum (which I'm sure is nice), we did visit the nyonya teahouse downstairs (using the teahouse entrance). Entering the teahouse is free of charge, and the teahouse itself is a spectacular visit as it is located in the courtyard. The auntie was very friendly and we ended up spending a couple of... More
