Missed the earlier guided tour when arrived. Which I think is best to join to understand better. Especially when we overheard the guide from the tour telling about the "ancient CCTV" peep hole to his guided members. Can't take much pictures though. Unlike the same museum from Penang.

Shirley was a lovely highlight in guiding us through the museum and emphasising the cultural aspects of Baba and nyonya life. Her wit was a much appreciated part of our experience and brightened up our afternoon!

Lovely view of what it would have been like to live in luxury in the last century in Melaka. Our guide Emily was very informative and clear with a nice twist of humor. Well worth the entrance fee.
