This is a small and important part of Melaka history; a fine example of a late 18th century two-storey building. This shop house was restored in response to a recommendation from the UN and it’s been done with original materials where possible. There is info to read about what and why, which is elaborated on by the man who looks after it and he is very knowledgeable. He will tell you about the street planning in the past, how the ventilation worked how the tiles stay in place and effectively channel off rainwater.

There are informative wall signs and pictures, and just wandering throughout the house allows you to understand a little better and to catch a glimpse of Old Melaka. No fees, but if you choose to make a donation you know it will aid future restoration work. Visiting hours are between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Tuesdays to Saturdays.
