A great history lesson on Melaka-style old houses. Tours come in, English, Malay and Mandarin. Well worth visiting on your next visit to Melaka.

The museum is set in a beautiful house. The tour is excellent. There are some beautiful pieces, accompanied by really interesting explanations of social customs of the time. Our tour guide Yang was very well informed and able to answer any questions we had. Very enjoyable. Highly recommend.

Visitors get to see not just jewellery, but also other aspects the Peranakan culture, such as furniture design, marriage practices and clothing. I learnt many surprising new things and enjoyed the tour immensely.
