Entrance fee is practically free at rm2 for adults. It just shows some displays of melaka and malay traditions and culture. Nothing fascinating to be honest but if you got spare time, why not....

The Palace was build a couple of decades back as a replica of the original Sultanate Palace. The actual palace was burnt in a fire accident and also by Portugese. This was built based on the literary descriptions. The palace has information on the Sultanate Darbar settings, Laws and Codifications, Dressing patterns, and some folk lore stories. Worth a quick...

The entrance ticket was very cheap at RM2 for Adult and RM1 for Kid. Be prepared that it will be equally warm or hot to visit on a Sunny day as it is not air-conditioned. A quiet place with not much visitors on a normal day except for occasionally visit from a group of students there for some quiz and... More

Unlike a lot of tourist attractions that feel "modern," the palace and grounds take you back in time to an era and history that a Westerner would never otherwise know about. It is a self-guided tour, but things are well marked and explained. A snapshot into the daily life of the sultan!
