This museum is stacked to the rafter with info about the history of Malaysia and its independence from GB But the print is difficult to read and there is fat too much of it. Lost the week to live trying to take it all in

It's my second visit to the museum. Second floor is closed for visit & it's making us confuse the way to going out

Independence Memorial houses an interesting museum which deals with the history of Malacca and Malaysia from the Sultanate period in the 15th century up to independence in 1957. There are a lot of good displays with English and entrance is free.

The building is really a beautiful structure, maybe the highlight. The interior is packed with written documents with tiny remarks in English trying to interpret the documents. There are interactive spots that do not work which was a shame. The search for true independence was...More

This is actually a museum to chart the struggle to become an independent country, with memorabilia and video displays. Worth visiting if a history fan.

The most impressive part of this attraction is the building in which the museum is housed. It contains a vast amount of information, slanted somewhat towards the contribution of the Malay section of the community rather than a more balanced view. However the displays are...More
