Owner description: Take a journey into Old Malacca within our walls. Step through the doors and visit a fine example of a late 18th century two-storey building. “No 8” houses a permanent exhibit on the conservation and restoration process of the building, as well as a short history of early shophouse and Dutch hybrid domestic architecture. The house is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10:30am to 4pm. No entrance fee; but donations are welcome.

“Very interesting and informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

From the outside, it is easy to miss this place. It opens at 11am and a wonderful man who goes by the name of Mr.Goh has given us a very nice tour around this ancient building which has been painstakingly restored. This place is recommended for everybody who is a Malaysian (and non-Malaysians too!). Its hard for us kids to phantom how the people in the past live and we should at least learn some history which are not in our textbooks.

Admission is free and donations are welcomed here.

“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.
