I went into the museum with my sister and cousin (our ages range from 19 - 23). There weren't enough of us to form a tour group as it was the day after a busy long weekend in Malaysia however my sister asked the lady there to perhaps share a few words with us about the museum and she kindly...

If you wish to know the history of Admiral Cheng Ho this is the place to visit. Even though you have to pay a minimal fee, it is worth it. There will be a guide to bring you around and astound you with the rich history. They have loads of antiques in there, a small theatre for show and also... More

I didn't even know this man existed. Now I do, thanks to the museum and I know about all the Chinese maritime exploits of the 15th century and perhaps before. Happy I went there. Don't forget to watch the introductory video. He also had a big role in the growth of Melaka and therefore Malaysia. Entrance is 10 RM. Dedicate... More

It's a nice and very informative museum. You can learn a lot of facts about Cheng Ho and the history of Melaka. If you are spending more than a day in Melaka, I would suggest you give it a try.

Very informative to learn about the amazing travels of admiral Zheng He's expeditions in early 1400's. It dwarfs Columbus expeditions later in the century. The museum could be in better upkeep and air-conned. Don't miss the short video near the entrance (this room has air-con). over all good information for those interested.

Cheng He (鄭和) Cultural Museum is located at 51, Lorong Hang Jebat. This is a private museum which has a very good collection of artefacts of that era including many Ming Dynasty porcelain artworks. Part of its building is modelled on鄭和 ship and has multiple decks. An adult ticket costs RM20 which is well worth it. The ticket also includes... More
