The Cheng Ho Cultural Museum is located in Lorong Hang Jebat, Melaka, Malaysia. The museum is about Zhang He. He was a Ming Dynasty’s Admiral Cheng Ho who visited Melaka up tp 5 times in his famous seven voyages to the Western Ocean. There he visited the Southeast Asia, Indian Ocean, Middle East as well as Africa. Along the Northern Side of the Melaka River, it was said where Zheng He built his big warehouse complex. It was also said that Zhange He’s warehouse may be at Bukit Cina because there is a Sampo well. Hence the area is named Sampo Hill.
In 2000, a discovery was made towards a cluster of dilapidated ancient buildings in the old part of Melaka Town. Some of them are believed to have been built more than 200 or 300 years ago. All of the warehouses have the Ming architectural style to it.
