Stadthuys, Melaka

#2 of 44 in Museums in Melaka
Architectural Building · History Museum
One of the oldest remaining Dutch colonial buildings in the Far East, Stadthuys sits in the heart of Melaka. Stop by this landmark building to learn about the history of the city and its various peoples, from Melaka's establishment in 1400 until 1957--the year the Federation of Malaya gained independence. The building formerly served as the seat of the Dutch administration and now houses history and ethnography museums. The earthy tones of the structure and the rest of the colonial-era square make a striking backdrop for photographs.
