After a long walk around St Paul Church - Portadesantiago - I found this amazing place - replica of Sultanate's Palace. Its a great reconstruction - I found many like this in Indonesia, but this one is different. You can learn Malacca's history from the painting. Also a perfect place to cooling down on hottie sunny day.

The reconstructed palace is classically made with no nails. The bottom floor shows what a general assembly would look like showing exactly where everyone would be seated by decree. The building does keep most of the heat out and windows are used to bring wind flow through. There are couples wearing the traditional dress from their districts as well as... More

The Sultanate Palace, nearby A'Formosa, is an interesting museum where you can spend a short while walking in the garden as well as exploring the wooden replica of a 15th century Sultanate's Palace. There are a few displays of inside setting out the history of the area. The replica was built using traditional methods, so there are no nails used... More

I'm a person who really appreciates museums, its like you're transported back in time. The collection were amazing, and true that students would benefit visiting this museum for zaman Kesultanan Melayu Melaka. There's even collection of royal ensemble of all the states. There's a certain magic which captivates guests in the museum. The architecture is amazing and beautiful.

The museum building is the most attractive thing. The garden surrounding the property is beautiful too. It's not very huge but still a very unique place to see. The ticket price very minimal so one must have a look at it.

I was curious to visit this place since the first time I arrived in Melaka. The palace is a bit hidden from the crowd, a bit walk from the other side of town, you will find it. They are plenty of interesting stuff inside which connect me to history of my own place. The palace also exhibits different types of... More

Cheap entrance fee & a very interesting insight into the history of the area. This building is a relatively recent reconstruction but has been sympathetically done. Only a short walk from Dutch Square & with attractive gardens. It's a quiet oasis right in the centre of Melaka. Steps up to access the front & steep door sills inside, may make... More

The lady who took our picture is really friendly! This place has lots of historical stuff about Malacca in the past. Those students learning Sejarah should visit this place to get a better picture.

Cheap entrance fee for what it delivers. Check out the secret garden. The structure alone is worth the price of admission. A MUST see.
