The other place that we managed to visit was the Malacca Museum. It should be the replica of a palace from the Malacca Sultanate back in the 15th century. The entry fee was cheap, only RM2 and we were given a plastic bag to put our shoes and carry them inside. There must be past cases of people's shoes being stolen when they were left outside. The museum housed exhibits which told the story of Malacca during its glorious days when Malacca Port was the meeting point for merchants from the east and west.

It was a real quick tour as the parking tickets for my car was expiring and we had to catch the ride on the Taming Sari and Sharudin had a class to catch at 2:00 p.m.

I definitely need more time to observe all the things put on display there. You need to spend a lot of time to make your visit to a museum more meaningful. But I have doubt my students would be interested to come to a place like this.
