This is a replica of the Sultanate Palace and is home to the Cultural Museum which celebrates the Malay side of the Malacca's history. So many different cultures had influence on Melacca, so it was good to see the Malay history. You wander around the rooms and see many life size models of what life was like. At one end... More

A replica of a palace that the historic sultanate might have used. The building itself is incredible, and the inside includes a museum featuring dioramas of scenes from Melaka court life and beautiful paintings of scenes from Melaka legend.

Small museum. Interesting for a short walk through. Nothing too impressive. The pictures do reveal some cultural aspects. I guess it should be included in a day’s visit of the city. Practical notes: Shoes must be taken off to go inside. The air-condition is very welcome during a day out in Malacca

I enjoyed my visit of the Malacca Sultanate Palace. There is a lot to read about the history and very nice paintings to look at. My tip would be to check the way the story goes. Sometimes we read the end of the story before the beginning.

It is a wooden replica of a 15th century Melaka palace and now serves as a cultural museum. From the exhibits, we learnt the Melaka culture. The exhibits include photographs, weaponry, drawings, musical instruments, gifts from foreign emissaries.
