  • Nobody was there, can only walk around and inside the garden. Good looking house
  • A living museum with a good collection of malay artefacts including costumes, furniture as well as other curios. It is located in Kampung Morten and is visible from Melaka River. The whole village is well lit at night with spot lights highligting the roof of the houses.
