Stadthuys is relatively a small building which focuses on the local culture of the region as well as a representation of the history of Maleka under different colonial powers. You may spend a maximum of an hour here.

This museum has so much unmet potential. But it is cool on a hot afternoon!! Poor signage in the museum tiny little cards in typed size 10/12 font.
There were some absolute gems but all mixed in with some pretty mediocre displays. No tour available - this may well have brought the place to life.
Building itself is impressive though!

In many ways it is the building itself which is the mst interesting part of the Stadthuys. The museum of ethnography has interesting exhibits though it is more cultural history than ethnography and it wasn't always clear what date the exhibits were depicting. The historical rooms too contained much of interest but sometimes historically unclear eg the section on the Japanese occupation had pictures from several dates between 1941 an 1945 but not chronologically. Also there was little in this section about the life of the inhabitants of Malaysia: it was mainly about British troops.

This museum has a nice interior, and some nice displays too. However there doesn’t seem to be a structure once you’re in. Perhaps it’s best to get a guided tour? There is a nice “traditional wedding” display and some other too, and since it’s so cheap (12 RM pp) it’s worth a visit. But it’s not really one to rave about.

We were driven by here when we did a half day tour but did not have time to go inside so we walked back and spent a lot of time looking through. You need a while as there is lots to see and read. We learnt a lot of history about Melaka. The Stadthuys is easy to find but make sure you allow your self enough time to have a good look .
