Some excellent exhibits and the background (Chinese emperors etc) was very useful. English labels leave a lot to be desired. This should shake European visitors' faith in what school history lessons taught them about 1492.

This is a privately owned museum with good collection of stuff related to Cheng Ho. Comes with a short movie screening. Rooms are spacious and cool.

Good collection of artefacts related to Cheng Ho's several trips to South East Asia. I believe the owner is a Singaporean and the museum is his private collection. Good if you like this part of Melaka's history. Cheng Ho is well respected in Melaka.

Some interesting materials mixed-up with a lot of junk. Chen-Ho's expeditions deserve far better then this! Also, this is a high temperature (sweltering experience).
