Overview

The Malacca Heritage Centre is a place untouched by time, where a unique heritage has been meticulously maintained. A museum that is still a family and ancestral home, it is filled with the objects and spirit of the Peranakan culture of Malacca, as it has been for more than a hundred years.

Let this centre take you back to Melaka's history. Worth 10-15mins taking a look inside, airconditioned so it's a good way to cool down too!

This museum tucked away in a side street opens up into two floors depicting the fascinating story of the history of Malacca. Helpful and interesting staff who explained everything. The cafe was good too. Well worth a visit
