Chen Ho’s Cultural Museum

This museum chronicles the life of the famous Ming Dynasty explorer, Admiral Chen Ho (Zheng He). He made seven voyages to Asia and five of these brought him to Melaka. Ho carried the Emperor’s daughter Princess Li Po to the port to marry the Sultan of Malacca. Her entourage, in turn, eventually married local Malaccans creating the Baba Nonya culture.
