“Part of what you must see when in Melaka”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Plan to spend a morning (when its cooler) in Dutch Square where you can see Stadthuys to get a sense of the history of Melaka. It is pretty dark, dingy and dusty but if you can get past this and simply appreciate what is there it will give you a good sense of the complex past of this small but historically important and influential port,

“Good museum with interesting displays”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Good, informative museum with some interesting displays. At the back their was more to see, but the rain limited our "appetite" and we did not really get the most of it. You can continue the tour further to the back and visit the Portuguese church at the hill.

“Nice displays”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Nice museums and displays but it would be much better if there's a guided tour. It's quite informative with lots about the history of Melaka.
