The replica of the palace is very well organised and has lots of information inside. Its a great insight into Melakas history. If you have a few hours, its worth seeing.

Lovely replica with some interesting pieces, particularly the various forms of dress for each Malaysian state. The gardens were having some work done but they are a pleasant quiet area for a walk (so long as it's not too hot or sunny). Enjoyable walk around the palace (shoes off before you enter). Very nominal entry fee.

I especially enjoyed strolling through the gardens. The variety of flowers with their vibrant colors and the pathways leading you around, made me stop several times to take in all the beauty surrounding me. The museum itself presents a 15th century royal household as well as some rare Malay artifacts.

We spent a hour at the replica of a Sultan's Palace which has been built in beautiful Teak wood and is based on the original 15 th century palace. Inside there are marvellous ornate wood carvings and numerous dioramas portraying the true Palace atmosphere of this era. Well worth a visit
