About

Malaysia Architecture Museum is a museum dedicated to everything related to architecture such as the philosophy and concept of architecture, construction materials like the Dutch, Chinese and Portuguese concretes and the belian timber. As a state that is well-known for its tourism industry and even getting nicknamed as the ‘Museum State’, this architecture museum is the latest addition of the museum collections available in town. In addition to that, the museum is located at Jalan Kota, Banda Hilir in which its building was once used as the residence and administration center of the Dutch officials in the 18th century.


Hence it is more than fitting that a museum dedicated to architecture is inside a building erected during the Dutch colonial period, making this among the must-visit place when in town. As the building has been around since the Dutch Empire period, there is such a rich history and value. Hence prior to being repurposed as a museum, the department of Museum and Antiquities did some restoration works in 1999 and finished in 2004 in order to retain its glory.

In a whole, the museum has two floors, where the ground floor would highlight the history of architecture while the first floor would highlight the technology, tools and materials used. In addition to that, there are also models of selected buildings in Malaysia at display, such as leaning clock tower of Teluk Intan, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station and more. The museum opens daily from 9 am to 5 pm and entrance is free for the masses.


How to Get There

By Car

People driving from Kuala Lumpur may drive through the North-South Expressway (PLUS) exiting at Ayer Keroh exit before continuing the journey towards the landmark. The journey could take up around two hours depending on the current traffic situation.


By Bus

The nearest express bus terminal is the Melaka Sentral which is located at Jalan Tun Razak, Plaza Melaka Sentral. Take the trip directly to Melaka Sentral from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) terminal using express bus services such as Delima Express and Transnasional Express. From here, hop on a local route bus or taxi to Malaysia Architecture Museum.


Tourist Attraction

Queen Victoria’s Fountain

Situated in the middle of the Dutch Square which is within walking distance to the museum, Queen Victoria’s Fountain is definitely hard to miss when visitors are around the area, being in front of the Christ Church and also the Stadthuys. It is an impressive, majestic, and historical fountain built during the reign of British in the state of Melaka from 1826 to 1946. More accurately, it is erected in 1901 to commemorate the late Queen Victoria Regina which also coincides with the Diamond Jubilee, in which is clearly reflected in its inscription. In present, the fountain is a picturesque spot for taking photos and enjoying the street view of Melaka.
