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.

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..

Slightly difficult to find parking. Very informative and fun activity for children. The earphones for information are a bit expensive.

It had a decent display. All of the information was really low and I had to crouch down if I wanted to read anything.

I was surprised because this ship is huge and moved to the mainland. The monument shows that Melaka is a port city
