Melaka Maritime Museum is a replica of the Flor de la Mar, a Portuguese ship said to have been carrying loot plundered from Malacca when it sank off the coast of Malacca on its way back to Portugal. Opened to the public in 1994, this unique museum is an enlightening trip back into Malacca’s past. It is a stunning museum when you see it from the dockside and inside is very interesting with lots of displays on the history of Melaka as a trading port, especially in Spices.
