“Worth it for RM6!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Went to visit the museum August 2013. Definitely worth a visit! Although the boat is a replica, it's interesting inside and has fab views - good for taking pics! Kids there seemed to love it. Agree that the museum could be more interactive but still interesting and I'd recommend going!

“useless to pay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

even if the price is nothing (RM6) to visit the boat and the museum, it is enough from outside. nothing really amazing in the replica boat, and the museum is really boring. a little bit more interactive things will be welcome

“Good stuff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Some nice history and a chance to see lots of models of historic ships. Some well told stories along the walls describe the history of malaka and the many conquerors from Europe. Worth the 6 ringgits entry fee.
