This structure shaped like that of an olden day vessel is actually the maritime museum in Melaka!

From atop of the hill at St. Paul’s Church, you can actually see this structure. Intrigued by what we saw, Kate and I ventured towards that general direction (from where we saw the ship) and visited the maritime museum.

There are plenty of photo opportunities around the maritime museum, we were amazed at the sheer size of the ship and how well maintained it was.

The entrance fee to the Melaka maritime museum is actually quite cheap at 3RM. We would definitely recommend going in and have a visit because of the wealth of knowledge that the museum offers. Of course it is also a cheap price to get out of the sun if it is a sunny day…

At the ticketing counter, you would be given a plastic bag. Dont be surprised. It is actually used to keep your shoes as the museum itself requires you to remove your shoes before entering into its premise. After crossing the gangway, on the main area, shoes are fine. However, entering into the air-conditioned area, shoes have to be removed…

Entering into the museum, you would find the exhibits quite interesting. It depicts how the port of Melaka at that time came to be and how it was a place where traders came to find trading opportunities. The history was also well recorded of how the Dutch,Portuguese and English came to power here…
