Wow - how informative and eye opening as to how the Chinese were far more advanced than anyone else in terms of colonialist expansion. Traveling with a fleet of tens of thousands of people required significant logistical planning - food alone (growing vegetables/fruits on board...More

I think the museum seems to be due for a re-work. It is informative. It will also be more helpful if the walking flow can be better to narrate the historical events better. My kids did enjoy the museum in general.

This place gives a very good history explanation of Cheng Ho and there are many displays there too. Entrance fee is RM10 per person and you can buy books about Cheng Ho or Peranakan history over there.

I visit Cheng Ho museum because I saw it has high review score here. The museum is very informative. The stories are well organized, but maybe too much information on the second floor. Short movie was really good and easy to understand.

It was a fun and interesting museum but it was a tad bit small! Other than that, I enjoyed it thoroughly! Recommend if you are looking for a museum to visit in 30 minutes.

Entrance fees were RM10 for each adult. It was interesting although the video was in Mandarin, with no English subtitles. All exhibits, fortunately, had English placards/explanations. We learnt a lot about the history of Admiral Cheng Ho. It was really interesting.

Museum is located near the entrance of Jonker Street and at what was believed, to be the site of the warehouse used by the Ming dynasty Chinese admiral Zheng He. Entrance is not expensive (10 RM?). If you are interested in history, especially maritime history,...More
