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!

I just saw it from the outside only due to time constrains and it is a very nice building located near the “A Famosa”, St. Pauls Church and the Mosque. It is a very well built replica of the Sultan’s Palace in teak wood and without nails. Everybody says it is the place to go to learn about Malacca history.

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.
