Malacca Maritime Museum Phase II

The Maritime Museum Phase II is housed in a building which was formerly a Guthrie's godown next to the replica of Portuguese Nao (Flor de La Mar) in Malacca.

The concept of this museum is "Ocean and the Mankind". It depicts how human being perceived and derived benefits from the seas.

I am quite impressed by the interior design as some sections are designed to resembled a ship hull with the frame and girder vividly visible.

The museum's display reflect the concept in which the civilization and technological change flourish in line with the development of the nation.

There is also a section dedicated to the marine life which lived in the ocean

The question and solution to the secret and mystery of the seas and their contribution to the civilization of mankind may be answered by the visit here.
