“Heritage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Visit first N°8 Heeren Street to get a comprehensive understanding of the house layout. Other houses offer more refined interiors and wealth but the beauty of the way of life is N°8 Heeren Street.

“...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

not bad, but we are not allowed to take any photos. and yeah, the best thing is it is free to visit. The guy who seems like the tour guide is good in explaining about the details of the house.

“Lovely space and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My friend and I happened upon this house while wandering through Melaka and decided to go in because I'd read something about it. There is no entrance fee and the staff is extremely welcoming and eager to share their story. One of them sat with us in the courtyard to tell us stories about the history of Melaka and the style of building they're trying to preserve. It's definitely worth a stop in (and there's a donation jar in front to help these sweet people with their passion).

“Great Dutch Heritage Building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Most of Melaka, although nice and atmospheric, lacks true heritage buildings that are not exploited for pure commercial purposes. 8 Heerenstreet has done a very credible job at restoring a former Dutch shop in its original state, and the staff is enthusiastically sharing information. Would be great to see a nice exhibition about the colourful history of Malacca in there. Worth a visit!
