Very well executed. Worth getting the audio guide for information of the different eras. Another great museum in Melaka

Admission is 10RM and worth every penny for some one like me who knew little about Melaka. We enjoyed the ship best. I wished the audio station was open as it would have made my learning even more interesting. Also, I would recommend the organizers add Chinese or a visual to inform visitors that they need to remove their shoes... More

Museum inside is such a bore! The ship view from outside is nice. Stairs are steep and is difficult to climb especially accompanied by kids

10rm entrance fee. The ship and the museum in the ship are the best. Next to the ship there is another museum, but that one is old and the displays are coverd in a thick layer of dust. Not everything is translated in English, a shame because tourists have to pay more than the locals. It's worth the visit, but... More

Found it as the most interest it visit there. It s at least original, kids will like it. It isn t like one Universal Studios, it s just an small expo, recommended to go. Rates for foreigners STILL affordable. Hope don t change as everithing is changing every day at Malaka.

Extremely reasonable for some photo opportunities. Pirates on hand to make it more memorable and centrally located.

There is an entrance fee that we must pay. Secondly, the ship is hugh but it feels old. The exhibits are boring and not captivating enough. Not worth to visit a second time..
