To be able to truly appreciate its beauty and worth, research on Malacca's history beforehand, because if not, you will miss the point of travelling to a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will miss half of Malacca's beauty if you haven't been here. Entrance: MYR10 From St. Paul's Hill / St. Paul's Church Ruins, it is at the left side... More

This is easy to walk down to from St Paul's Hill and although it's a reconstruction, we found it interesting for a short visit. There were a couple of tri-shaws waiting outside if you're too tired to walk back- although it's not far.

The museum has a history of Hang Jebat and Hang Kasturi. It is an interesting read because the streets named after these icons form the main streets in the city. Overall, quite interesting. Suggest to do it during the afternoon as it serves as a break from the heat.

Although a reconstruction this building gives a lot of information and history of the Malaka trade and people. The exhibits are good and the signs are in both Malay and English and well written.At 5 Riminibi each it was a very interesting diversion on a hot afternoon.

No nails were used to build this impressive structure. Inside are a bunch of cheesy mannequins re-enacting points in Melaka's history. Nevertheless, the displays are impressive and beautiful artifacts and period clothing illustrate the stories. The building itself is just gorgeous. Don't forget to take your shoes off!

Visit to the palace was quite pleasant. There are many paintings and displays to look at and the palace itself was quite cooling. However, visitors may wish to note that this palace is a replica. Entry cost RM3.

At the entrance there are people performing some sort of traditional dance, more like a war dance. There are two levels of exhibits with anecdotes. The exhibits were mostly about the lifestyle and trading practices of yesteryear.

There's a lot of museum along the way in this Kompleks Warisan Melaka, but this Sultanate Palace is one of the best. It covers many interesting story inside. Hang Tuah and Hang Hebat battle is one of them. Not to mention, great view too. Depends on your time of visit, when we're here, it was quite private, not too many... More
