Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum

Top choice museum in Melaka City

Touring this traditional Baba-Nonya (Peranakan) townhouse transports you to a time when women peered at guests through decorative partitions and every social situation had its specific location within the house. The captivating museum is arranged to look like a typical 19th-century Baba-Nonya residence. Tour guides (an extra RM4; every half-hour) enliven the setting with their arch sense of humour.

Book ahead or arrive just before the strike of the hour. The last tour of the day is an hour before closing time.
