You can't go inside as it was closed for maintenance. Plastic netting / barrier around the building just spoils it. Should have posted signboards stating it closed, at the foot of the hill before visitors made the climb up. Maybe even give an idea of the extent and duration which maintenance work will take.
Great place for those who are curious about the history of Malacca and some good spots for photography. Free entry too. There are also some food and beverage vendor close to this place.
