The converted Portuguese trader houses a detailed step by step historical time line. The cool environment allows a relaxing time to immerse yourself totally in the cultural mix that spices up the local life.

Historical what matter, pay for MYR 6.00 and you able to visit 3 more museum, good angle to take picture, browsing inside the ship, understand the history. Suggest to bring water quite hot inside. Inside the ship also sell the souvenir as cheap as MYR5.00 (ship replica)

We visited the Flora de la Mar and the Maritime museum in June 2015. Whilst the sheer scale of the ship was impressive and the displays inside interesting, the ship is in need of some maintenance and a bit of paint. TheMaritime museum also included in the ticket price is also looking somewhat tired with some of the displays looking... More

Very boring, nothing much to be "Wowed". Kids only find it interesting to climb up and down stairs. Opposite this ship you can find 2 storey souvenirs shops not to be missed.

The Flor do Mar's longevity still remarkable. At a time when India ships were built for only three or four years of useful service, the Flor do Mar was one of the longest-lasting ships of the India run

I always go to maritime museums when travelling. This was interesting being in a replica ship. It gave a good history of Melacca, there was plenty to read. We missed the second part in the adjoining building as it wasn't well sign posted.

This place was cool, it has many exhibits inside and was quite cheap. It's located right on the river near the mouth so it's a great place to start if your thinking of walking the river and adjacent to this museum is the melacca river cruise if your legs are too tired to walk the river.
