Melaka – Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum

As this was my second time going to Melaka, decided to pop by the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum to have a look of the Nyonya culture. It is actually a walking distance from the red Gereja Christ Church area. You may book a coach online and travel from Singapore to Malacca. It’s about 4 hours coach ride. (without traffic jam)

There was a guided tour to bring you around, explaining the culture in details.

Ancestor worship Hall

If I did not remember wrongly, this should be the common room

Cherki Card Game – A popular card game among the Nyonya back in the olden days

They dug their own well for water supply

The study area

Traditional Nynya Beaded shoes (also known as kasot manek)

The bedroom

Their traditional clothes kebaya

Tools for making the jewellery


From the jewellery, it is not hard to guess how wealthy the Baba Nyonya were back in the olden days.

The wedding certificate

The Phoenix Crown (wear during wedding)
