We accidentally made this visit on a hot afternoon and wanted shade. The building looks really period and well kept.

The scenery around the Palace is beautiful! The Palace itself is as impressive from the outside as it is from the inside. You can learn a lot about the history of Melaka by just visiting the Palace.

Nice place to learn about history of Malaysia and Melaka it's very close to afamosa and you can take a trishaw ride to the location as well. The fee is rm 3 for locals and rm 5 for foreigners

Cheap entrance fees with cheaper fees paid by Malaysian citizens (as it should be). All displays were static with information boards in Malay and English. Reasonably informative. 1 hour sufficient to cover visit.
