The Malacca Sultanate Palace is worth paying the 2RM entrance fee, even if it is just for the photo opportunities. The architecture is amazing and in great condition. Inside are many displays which help you understand the history of the area. Worth 1 or 2 hours of your time.

This palace is a replica of a Sultanate. The building is impressive for photo ops in the outside. Inside the palace, there are some displays telling the founding of Malacca, some stories of the heros; as well as the head scarf and dress of the Sultans for the Malay States. For such a vast place, it could be more educational in content. But you can quickly walk through it in 20 minutes.

The Malacca Sultanate Palace is an exact replica of the sultan's palace of the extinct sultanate of Malacca. It is also the home of the Cultural Museum celebrating the Malay history of Malacca.

It is unique as in Malaysia as it offers a rare glimpse of the ancient Malay kingdom which once flourished in Malacca.

This building is really worth a visit on its own merit - the dioramas and displays inside are a bonus, as are the gardens. Do it!

We just passed the place and was intrigued by the palace, and just came in. The fee only 2RMB, the palace are very well maintained, with some good information (with picture, mannequin, and information board - both in malaysian and english). Spend around 1 good hour there, and you can learn a bit about malaka history, including some of their heroes.
