Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum



This was not the first time I’m visiting Malacca this year, infact early April we did a one day roadtrip to Malacca. Malacca is a place that holds one of the most historical story in Malaysia and Asia.
This historical city centre has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 2008.

The Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum holds the history Baba and Nyonya descendants who have adopted much of the Malay culture into theirs. The public can now view this heritage at a private museum run by the Babas and Nyonyas of Melaka. Basically, Intermarriage between early Chinese settlers and local Malays resulted in the unique Baba-Nyonya culture.
This is a double storey building.
We are not allowed to take any photographs in this Museum, but I managed to buy this set of postcards which potrays images in the Museum.
It cost only RM8 per adult and they are open Daily from 10am - 12.30pm and 2pm - 4.30pm. The price is inclusive of a guided tour which is conducted by a Portugese descendant.The Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum is located at Jonker’s Walk (Jonkers Street) and you can walk there or take a Trishaw.
