“A nice, informative palace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The thing about this palace (it's actually a replica) is that it's a huge wooden house that has no nails. Yup, zero nails.

As it is nice, it's not hugely impressive or gorgeously beautiful. The ticket only cost 2RM so it's worth a brief visit. There are exhibitions inside that can inform you of the history of malai war heroes.

“Interesting building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

I like history and the lime wqandering around the building imaging what it woulf have been like it not to be missed.

Contents are not exessive but give a good picture of the lives of the Sultans

The attached museums are really not worth the trip except for Malays who would understand the contents which is mainly all written. Having said that they are free.

“It's a replica , but worthwhile visiting !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

You have to pay a little fee to tour inside, but it will be definitely value for money.

Take your time to relax and get ready to browse through the economic and historic development of Melaka through the exhibits.

What a place to kill so many films ? Thanks for the digital imaging science.

“Nice way of knowing the Malacca history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is a replica of the Sultanate palace, there is an entrance fee for Malaysian citizens and a different fee for non-Malaysians.. It is a huge replica, stores all kinds of historical evidences.. do take your time to read.. if you are in a hurry, then consider this place for your next visit.. this replica palace is situated near Dataran Pahlawan and A Famosa..
