Cheng Ho Cultural Museum
Melaka's largest museum
What we say:
Named for the Chinese mariner who travelled to 33 countries from 1405 till 1433, including Malaysia, this is the largest and priciest of Melaka's museums.
Its 13 galleries give exhaustive coverage of the history of the Chinese in Melaka as well as Chinese art, tea culture, religion and sea-faring. There's also a short film and a classical Chinese puppet show of Chen Ho's life.
This one's recommended for serious history buffs, but you can walk around the lobby and view some art without paying the admission fee.
