but slightly over-rated. Kids got in for free. Would have spent more time to look over the details if it wasn't so crowded.

Felt as though we were on the set of Pirates of the Carribbean.

Snapped a few pictures and left. The good thing about visiting Malacca is that most of the sight-seeing places are fairliy concentrated in one area. You visit one and you may as well visit all the other surrounding ones. Just not a very stroller friendly area.

Once you get on board this ship, you find yourself transported back in time to the days when spice traders sailed the high seas in order to expand their trade. Fascinating displays and stories.

The place is well kept and divided into 3 different sections. One of them is arranged within a ship. It does not show particular things, but entrance fee is affordable and can be fun for kids. Location is close to most of Melaka attractions and therefore can be part of a tour.
Visit should take no more than 1 or 1.5 hour according to your interest.

Not so interesting as nothing much to see except that if you have extra time to spend and also have the interest to read all the informative articles all over. Entrance fee is cheap though so cant complain much :-I

Remember to wear sandals or slip-ons so its easier to take them off and put back on as no shoes are allow in the museums.

Great attraction. On the day of our visit, it was extremely hot, but the air conditioned interior of the boat made the walk around much more pleasant. Fascinating tour through the heritage of Malacca. Our two young children particularly liked climbing around the ship. Well worth a visit.
