What to Expect?

The Submarine Museum is housed within an actual decommissioned submarine. The SMD Ouessant is an Agosta 70 class submarine which was built in 1978 by Arsenal de Cherbourg in France. Used by Royal Malaysian Navy crews from 2005 to 2009, the submarine is now an educational center located in Klebang to show visitors what one looks like on the inside.

The museum features a decommissioned France-made Agosta class 70 submarine, which was used by the Royal Malaysian Navy for submarine training for a short period of time. The submarine is measured 67.5 meters in length, 11.7 in height and 6.5 meters in width. It weighs 1,300 tonnes.

In a word: it is cramped. However, it was quite interesting to walk through the submarine from front to back and curiously tap away at the old computers (with a low-key fear of setting off nuclear disaster despite it being decommissioned).

There are also two fighter jet planes on display next to the submarine, do not miss the chance to take a picture.

The museum opens everyday from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m on Monday to Thursday and from 9.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m on Friday to Sunday.

    Malacca Submarine Museum, also known as the Submarine Museum Melaka, is a unique museum located in Malacca City, Malaysia. It is situated near the Taman Melaka Raya area and is a popular tourist attraction in the region.

    The museum's main highlight is the decommissioned submarine on display, which is the Ouessant-class submarine named KD (Kapal DiRaja) Hang Tuah. The Hang Tuah submarine, formerly known as the Ouessant, was a diesel-electric submarine that served in the Royal Malaysian Navy.

    The museum offers visitors a chance to explore the interior of the submarine, providing a glimpse into the daily life of submariners and the operational aspects of a submarine. Inside, you can see the various compartments, including the living quarters, control room, torpedo bays, and the engine room.

    Visitors can also learn about the history of the submarine and its role in the Malaysian Navy. The museum provides informative displays, exhibits, and multimedia presentations to educate visitors about the submarine's operations, its importance in naval warfare, and the contributions of the Royal Malaysian Navy.

    The Malacca Submarine Museum is an excellent place for those interested in naval history, military technology, or simply looking for a unique museum experience. It offers a hands-on and immersive opportunity to explore a real submarine and gain insight into the life of submariners.

    RM10 for 1 adult. Not worth it. Tour were average. Nothing much. If they include 1 small keychain or fridge magnet or even 1 small drinks, maybe worth much better. Some tourist cant even read the sign, laluan keluar masuk, keep on going back and forth at tight space.

    Came here to purposely let my kids experience and see the actual submarine up close. There is none as far as I know at any other places in Malaysia. Pretty easy to find the place. It's an isolated tourist spot about 2km from town. Nothing much nearby.

    The charges are inexpensive - RM5 for kids and RM10 for adults Malaysian. Foreigner different charges. Besides the submarine, there are 2 retired jets as well. You can enter into the submarine to view some parts of the ship. Once you are inside, it's quite a tight space. At least we normal people can experience the feel being on board. The operator should have install more air conditioning unit if not fan to improve the hot and humid conditions inside for more conducive viewing. Anyway you wouldn't stay long inside. Overall I feel that the exterior of the submarine should have been maintained properly as there are many rusting spots. Very soon the exterior wall will be corroded beyong repair.

    Whereas for the 2 jets there were being covered under a roof structure. No access to the cockpit. The kids sure will be thrilled if they can sit in the cockpit.

    Overall our visit is short as there are not much to hang around for. Maybe the state government and operator should create more display and attractions at this place as there are plenty of space.
