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 designed to depict the palace of the sultan of Malacca. The structure of this building is created based upon the original 15th century palace from the explanations given in the Malay Annals and one great achievement is that this building was built without using any nails.


The popular exhibits are on the Melaka's culture besides other interesting displays from the other parts of Malaysia which include themes on clothing, musical instruments, photographs, stone inscriptions and weaponry. One special feature is a diorama showing the sultan's court. The Terengganu Stone which depicts Arabic and Malay inscriptions can also be seen here.
