Built in 1650 as the official residence of the Dutch Governor and his officers, The Stadthuys is a fine example of Dutch architecture of that period. It is believed to be the oldest Dutch building in the East.
An outstanding example of colonial Dutch architecture, this edifice now houses the History Museum and Ethnography Museum.
On display are traditional bridal costumes and relics from Melaka's over 400-year history. Both museums are well-laid out and offer detailed explanations of how these costumes and relics played their part in Melaka's glorious past.
The main square in front of the Stadthuys is where you'll find several highly ornamented trishaws ridden by friendly old men. For a little tip, this makes a great photo opportunity. The Stadthuys is closed on Mondays.
