What to Expect?

Cheng Ho Culture Museum is believed to be a restructured ancient building with Ming architecture, with two to three hundred years of history. The famous Cheng Ho is the Ming Dynasty Admiral who has visited Malacca many times while en route to the Western Ocean from 1405-1433.

It is believed that he has set up a huge warehouse complex along the northern side of Malacca River. To date, there has been dispute in the location of the warehouse complex, while some believed to be at Bukit Cina. Nevertheless, the museum showcases many evidence of cultural exchange between the local ethnic and the Chinese, among others, treasure ships, tea houses and other navigation instruments.

The museum mainly exhibits the life of Zheng He and his world voyage in his fleets. It displays his travel with big pictures of Chinese history. The museum can roughly be divided into several sections:

1. Old Melaka Village
2. Ship Gallery
3. Treasure Ship
4. Antique Gallery
5. Garden Courtyard

The museum building is divided into three levels. It occupies 8 units of old shop houses and covers a total floor area of 5,110 m2. Some of the shops were built before 1786. A drum and a bell tower are located in front of the museum.

    A great experience learning about admiral Zheng Ho and his 7 voyages through Asia to the West. Lots of exhibits, so do budget a little more time.
