Melaka Maritime Museum

The visitor will be unlikely to miss this full-size replica of the Flor de la Mar, a Portuguese ship which was lost off the coast as it was taking plundered items back to Portugal. This is actually the home of the Melaka Maritime Museum. Inside you will find model of various vessels, artifacts and historic documents. Examples of the porcelain, silk, textiles and spices are on display to remind you how this port, called the Venice of the East, established important trading links.

It only costs RM5 to visit this replica ship; good value like most of the attractions in Melaka.
