“definetly worth the money”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The entrance fee is 5 RM. The palace itself and the attached garden are nice. The inside is interesting, though nothing overwhelming should be expected. We stayed there for about an hour, and enjoeyed the break from the crowded places around it.

“nice place to wander”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

The Melaka Sultanate Palace is a lovely building with interesting architecture. However, the mannequins inside the building were kind of peculiar. One can read about the story of Hang Tuah and Hang Jebat, the famous two warriors.

There's a RM2 entrance fee to this area, and I saw one guy who didn't pay. The lady at the entrance was annoyed but other than that, nothing much happened.

There's a garden area as well, but beware of the bees.

“Beautiful old building”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Great to explore a traditional sultan's palace. The displays were very good and informative - especially the costumes from the different groups around Malaysia. The gardens are lovely and the space under the palace is a nice place to rest and catch a cool breeze. Highly recommended.

“Nice building, interesting history!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Part of walking around in the historical part of Melaka is a visit to this old, Sultan palace. The building in itself is very interesting and his quite some history as well without being "over the top".

“lovely historical building”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Unfortunately the displays within the palace are on the amateur side. Lovely to wander about & absorb the culture of the past. Beautiful building
