It 's true: the palace is a fake, it was rebuilt in the late nineteenth century, reproducing what was to be the residence of Melaka Sultan in its heyday (the XV century). But in my opinion this doesn't prevent the building (along with the museum that it contains), to constitute the most evocative attraction in Melaka, about the cosmopolitan city's... More

The place is well kept. If you follow through the order as recommended by the guide, you develop a very clear idea of how life was like during the Malacca sultanate.

Enjoyed the costumes and original set up. It's like travelling back in time to 1500 seeing the people and activities during Sultan Mansur Shah's reign

3 ringgit for locals and 5 for tourists. I love the place due to its uniqueness. However, displays are quite frustrating. PERZIM must do something to ensure that the entrance fees worth the visit. Overall it was a nice one but there are still rooms for improvement.

The museum is near the A'Famosa Fort entrance and has an entrance fee of 5MYR. The exhibits are mostly life-sized figurines of traders and people, depicting scenes from Melaka's historical past. Some exhibits also show the clothes, jewellery and customs of that period. Not enough about how the colonial forces influenced things. Good to have a quick look.

The reconstruction of the palace is well done with 50's era dioramas that are out of date and hokey. Interesting way to get an overview of Malaysian history and customs. What made the small admission price more worthwhile was strolling through the attached gardens.

The replica of the palace is decent enough to visit to get a sense of the sultant's life style and governing structure then. The displays are largely repetition of what have been presented at Stadhuys ...

A little dusty inside, but an interesting chance to look at that type of building up close. The dioramas are 'interesting' even if the dummies are a little odd. Don't forget to take your shoes of first.

Located beside AFamosa, only RM3 per adult for MyKad holder. Refreshing our memories of school time on History of Melaka. The building itself is a masterpiece. A detailed walk around might takes around 1.5hr.
