In a city with many antique, art, craft and souvenir shops the Malaqa House stands out as one not to miss. Staff (Grace) was helpful and knowledgeable about the history and significance of their older cultural icons and articles.

I took some photos around this shop at the front side. When moved to the back side of the shop, I was warned by an old lady not to take photo as that section is for sell. Kinda confious is it a shop or museum or..? Owner should have notify customers/visitors earlier by putting a signboard.

Worth a visit. Walk along Melaka river at night is a must. Stay at Jonker street will save you travel time since most of places to visit is just a walking distance. Stayed at Jonker Boutique Hotel.

Located in a restored heritage shop house, this is a part museum and part business store. Lots of interesting antiques, replicas, furniture, carvings and artwork. Quite a large shop house, it is worth a visit if in the area.

It's great that they still preserve the structure of the original house. Decent display and collection of antiques. I especially love the semi open indoor garden. Since it is a small museum, would be great if they make the upper floor available for customers to enjoy coffee/tea and traditional baba nyonya kuih for tea time or perhaps a photo booth... More

We visited the Melaqa House Museum and antique shop accidentally when we passed by Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, on 2 May 2015.

As with many attractions that we visited in Melaka, we stumbled upon this museum while walking down the street and decided to go inside especially because of free admission. We stayed for no more than 25 minutes, but I thought it was a very neat little place worth the visit. Excellent artwork and artifacts lined the walls and we were... More
