Another little interesting museum in Melaka, bigger inside than you think but worth going in and around and you get to go in the building attached to it as well

Brought students here in June 2013. Nice small space museum indoor with AC. Children get to walk around and see the history. The museum is within the ship. It's also nice to stand on deck and see the surrounding and snap a few photos for remembrance.

We popped in to this sight on our first walk around Melaka. It only costs a couple of bucks and our son (toddler) loved exploring the boat. There's not much to say: it's a historic ship that someone has pulled up on land (somehow). You can see the deck and the two floors below include a range of historical information,... More

It cost me RM10 to enter here. I enjoyed the visit, both being on the ship reconstruction and reading the museum information. There's a lot to learn about the rise and fall of Melaka from initial settlement, European colonial powers, and decline of wealth.

A creative way to learn more about Malaysia's history. I like how it's like being inside a ship. Kids would love it.

My son of 6 loved this, went into the ship, looked at all the exibits, asked lots of questions, went to the Naval museum across the road and played with the Ships Guns etc. Well worth the money and time

The Maritime Museum of Malacca is located just ahead of the Stadthuys. It is exactly opposite of the Medan Samudera which is a handicraft and local produce building. The best way to get to the Maritime Museum from the Stadthuys is by walking as you can appreciate better the museums, galleries, mosques, churches and other historical fort around Banda Hilir....

There aren't much information about most of the artifacts inside the museum. And about the structure of the museum.

I was not really looking forward to this museum at first but my kids insisted we board the ship to see what was inside. I was surprised to see the amount of information on Melaka's history given here. My kids really liked this museum. My advice would be to spend some time to actually see this place and read the...
