Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum reviews
This is not a must go place but in case you have spare time then do visit because this museum tells you a lot about the history of the Malay islands. more »
You will get to know about the local culture in the museum. The museum is well maintained and the staffs are friendly. However I think it's not worth to pay extra for the guided tour as you could... more »
Amazing museum with great guides and Chinese history! highly recommended while in Melaka.
This is a private museum. Been there a few times and still amazed by its architecture and history. Walking through the corridor sometimes made me wonder what life was like back then.
