The museum is housed in a replica of the Flor de la Mar, a Portuguese vessel that sank off the Malacca coast. Information on the history of Malacca from the sultanate of Malacca in the 14th century to the pre-independence era is well documened here....More

More inside than we realise. Interesting and everything is kept easy to read. Grandparents and grandchildren enjoyed it too. The big ship replica outside is a big crowd draw , and a good picture opportunity.

Replica boat used as part of the museum and provides a timeline into the history of Melaka. Another building also contains information on maritime history. In all it is like walking around reading a giant encyclopedia on sign boards with very few real displays.

They improved on having audio tours. What's disappointing is that the place is not well maintained. The roof was leaking and there's buckets everywhere. Don't forget to go across the street to the TLDM museum. They need to put proper lables on their display items....More

Not much to do, just sight seeing. But there are many replicas and histories inside. It's good for children to learn more about Malacca. And the location is just near by the Dutch Square.

huge Replica of a portuguese ship. Not much to do in the ship, only sight seeing. Becareful though, the ladder is steep. If you enter the area you have to pay RM 10 For adult, it include maritime museum.
