My expectations were sky-high after all the dazzling reviews. So after visiting, I thought it was very good but nowhere near Melaka's best attractions. First things first, you don't have to pay extra for a guide, the collection is beautiful and you can take many...More

This museum is housed in a heritage building on the same road as the Baba & Nyonya Museum. As well as the jewellery and furniture display, we learnt about the Peranakan culture. There is also a nice collection of shoes and porcelain on display. A...More

This museum shows a house belonging to a wealthy woman who lived in Melaka and the collection is really impressive! You´ll find original pieces of furniture longing to her as well as her clothes and jewelry, so interesting. It´s really worthy a visit!

We visited this museum in the morning and said “yes” to having a guide and she was awesome. It made such a difference to our visit as we got to understand so much more. The jewellery upstairs is incredible.

Eva was an excellent tour guide, she really knew the finer details of the contents of this museum. We found it utterly fascinating and being left to soak it all in rather than rushed through a particular series of displays was much appreciated.

This splits into two with an opportunity to wander through an affluent Chinese house with the rooms largely as they were and the opportunity to view Chinese jewellery of the early 20th century. This makes a visit here a real pleasure. It was relaxed and...More
