A historic place for you to take photo. However you can't enter without permission from the guards. Recommended to go in by tour.

apart from the nice external architecture the inside is rather boring. I asked a question to the staff and they were either not aware of a response or were not interested to give a response. Nevertheless a worth while visit for the fees

A must visit in a city full of museums and history. Displays are extensive with so much to see and enjoy. Traditional dress examples stick in my mind along with the stories and accompanyin dioramas. The building itself is beautiful, a perfect setting

A replica and was interestingly constructed without the use of a single nail. It showcases the history of the region. It appropriately holds galleries of the pre-colonial rule, a time when this was a very important seat of power for the entire Malaysian peninsula and surrounding area. The place has seven gallery rooms revealing what a Sultanate chamber meeting might... More

The whole place was super cool - so big with a lot of details and figures to tell a story. This place also showed another side of Malacca than just the colonial style buildings. What I liked most is that they had put some work into telling the history about the place, so that you actually could try to imagine... More

This is a replica of the original palace. Exhibits include a mock up of the sultan and the hierarchy of a attendees in the meeting room, and the story of two warriors. Plenty of paintings to show the Malay life of the sultan 600 years ago. Also there is the garden to walk around.

A great place for learning Malacca History. Comfortable with air-conditioner, the collections also be maintained well. My favourite part of this palace is Balairung Seri (Audience Hall) which brought me like in that period, easy to understand and show how powerful the Malacca Sultanate in that era. I also love the architerture of this building.
