Beautiful pcs of jewellery on showcase and you are allowed to take pictures! The lady was very patient at explaining everything about the Baba Nyonya culture to us. Definitely a place to visit instead of Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum.

Excellent museum and we has a great tour guide, Julia was her name if I remember correctly. This museum has a collection that shows the lifestyle of the merchants who lived in these "merchant" houses. Excellent collection, especially the gold jewelry. Don't miss this museum in you are in Malacca.
