Stadthuys Tours

The Stadthuys, also called the Red Square, is thought to be the oldest extant Dutch colonial structure in Southeast Asia. Built in 1650, the Stadthuys originally served as the home of the Dutch governor and today houses the Museum of History and Ethnography. The massive complex was fashioned after the town hall in the Frisian town of Hoorn in the Netherlands and is considered one of the finest examples of colonial Dutch architecture in Malaysia.

The collection housed within the museum includes costumes and relics from Melaka's centuries-long history, including musical instruments, wedding costumes, kitchenware, weapons, stamps and currency that paint a picture of what life was like for the trade port’s various communities throughout its history. Even if you don’t go in to browse the museum, the Stadthuys is one of the best and most popular spots for a photo opportunity in town.

Practical Info

The Stadthuys is open Monday through Thursday from 9am to 5pm and Friday through Sunday until 8:30pm. The large red building is located in the center of Old Melaka near Jalan Kota.
