We have not get inside but replica ship looks great. The original Portugise ship sank off the coast of Melaka on the way to Europe around 1510. The replica looks great.

This is a replica of the original ship which was last seen in Aceh, Indonesia. The original one is said to bring loads of gold and other valuables. For those who loves history, this is a must-visit. Worth every pennies spent.

Cool museum with ship like design. You can climb and enter the ship to see the exhibit provided. It's a must visit place as it's a one of a kind museum. You'll not regret it.
