Really interesting objects and friendly, helpful guide. Mr Tih is really passionate about his museum and enjoys telling people about the history of Malakka. Great for kids. Even found a random calendar from 1958! Highly recommended.

I give this attraction a high rating purely because of the enthusiasm of the curator of this museum. Mr Tih is a valuable asset to this establishment. All manner of vintage items on display - comes with great information from Mr Tih.

This museum brings you back to the 50’s and 60’s— a time he when life was simple but less stressful. I commend the guide, Mr. Tih, for his enthusiastic and passionate explanation of the museum.
