The Melaka Sultanate Palace is a full-size replica of the Melaka Sultan's palace during the period of the Melaka Sultanate. The replica was built from information and data obtained from the Malay Annals. These historical documents had references to the construction and the architecture of palaces during the era of Sultan Mansur Syah, who ruled from 1456 to 1477. The replica of the palace was built in 1984 and houses a fascinating cultural museum. The building is made of hardwood while the roof is made of 'belian' wood. An interesting feature of the building is that no nails were used in the construction of the building, only wooden pegs, in keeping with traditional construction techniques of the era. Once inside, the musuem focuses on the history and cultural significance of the Malayan Sultans.
