Melaka's most unmistakable landmark and favourite trishaw pick-up spot is the Stadthuys, the imposing salmon-pink town hall and governor's residence. It's believed to be the oldest Dutch building in the East, built shortly after Melaka was captured by the Dutch in 1641, and is a reproduction of the former Stadhuis (town hall) of the Frisian town of Hoorn in the Netherlands.
Housed inside the Stadthuys is the nicely presented History & Ethnography Museum and also part of the complex is the mildly interesting Literature Museum , focusing on Malaysian writers. Admission to both museums (as well as the Governor's House and the Democratic Government Museum ) is included in the admission price to Stadthuys.
