Trip Planner: Malaysia / Melaka State / Central Melaka District / Melaka / Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum
Stop by Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum for a chance to board a replica of a Portuguese sailing ship and experience a taste of life at sea in the 16th century. Named after the ship it displays, this museum allows visitors to discover the history of sea travel in the region through numerous artworks and maritime artifacts. Pick up an audio guide at the entrance or wander at your own pace, reading the provided information signs. The original version of the ship exhibited here was the largest carrack ever built at the time of its completion. After serving for 9 years--a remarkably long lifetime for a vessel of that period--the ship and its hoard of treasures sank during a storm. Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

Flora de la Mar Maritime Museum reviews
You'll be able to pose for slightly distant selfies against the exterior of the ship, but they are reworking the interior so you can't go in. It's only 3 mins walk from the river cruise boarding... more »
There is a lot to see inside this museum. If you are a fan of Melaka history, I'm pretty sure you will enjoy it. If you are here just to have a look, I would say it is still a pretty good place too... more »
Air conditioner is not working. Too hot like a sauna in here.
Entrance fee is RM5.00 - I believe its worth it ... I’ve never seen a life size ship like this before even if its just a replica. It is pretty cool!!
