The Cultural Museum in Melaka
is located a walking distance away from the A' Famosa.
This tourist attraction is found at the eastern section
of the base of the St. Paul's Hill whereby the building is
a wooden replica specially

clothing, musical instruments, photographs, stone
inscriptions and weaponry. One special feature is a
diorama showing the sultan's court. The Terengganu Stone
