  • Nicely maintained museum for a short walk and view. Many items displayed showing Melacca was once an important port for trading. It's free entry and air conditioned. On a rainy day or hot afternoon, the kiddos might also enjoy their stroll in the museum. It's interesting to find out how people smuggle things through Malaysian custom and the precious goods trying to smuggle through Malaysian custom. It's also interesting to find out the wages for the custom officers during colonial time. Good work to the Malaysian Marine Department!
  • Good collection of custome officer's items..
