“If in Malacca it is worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

A lovely old building and probably the only place worth seeing in Malacca. The history is well displayed and the exhibitions of old costumes and relics are quite well done.

“Not only museum, but also historical building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

The place was not only interesting to visit for its collection (many mock ups from old ships can be found) but also for the building itself. You can easily spend one hour inside this museum.
The entrance fee is very low, like most places to visit in Malaysia.

“Nice :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Very near to another major tourist attractions in Melaka, Stadhuys is conveniently located in the heart of the city and there's some stalls of food and drinks or trishaw with colorful and loud speakers :)

“Needs a bit of work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice insight into the life of the Dutch when they were in Melaka. Great work on setting up the displays. But, I think it is about time that some maintenance work be done on the whole museum.
