"Cheng Ho Cultural Museum" Museums Tip by Willettsworld

Museums, Melaka: 47 reviews and 124 photos


This museum showcases artefacts related to Admiral Cheng Ho in the context of Malacca history, the early cultural exchange between the locals and the Chinese, a model treasure ship, navigational instruments, and even a teahouse, among others.

The Museum is located on what, according to the museum, is claimed to be the site of warehouses belonging to Admiral Cheng Ho - though the museum carefully states that more study needs to be carried out to substantiate the claim. Another claim linking Bukit China to Admiral Cheng Ho, on the account that the hill was called Sampo Hill is also in question, as there has not been any proof of Cheng Ho ever being at the hill.

Open: 9am-6pm. Admission: RM20.
