Melaka Umno Museum
Melaka Umno Museum is located along Jalan Kota, in Bandar Hilir, which is the museum belt of Malacca. The museum showcases historical exhibits related to the founding and struggles. Among the items displayed are old photographs, letters and other documents.
The reason to site the museum in Malacca is, among others, because Umno was founded in this state. The UMNO (United Malays National Organization) Museum movement provides a historical account to this political party, which has played an important role in shaping the political scene in Malaysia since the days of independence. As such, it is a worthy historical subject matter that might interest pure political historians and proud Malaysian nationals. Museum rooms are simply wall-to-wall text of the history of UMNO with little else to see. The information is well presented. You might find time and the reasons are enough to pop in for a visit to learn a bit about the UMNO.
The Stadthuy Muzium
This place is for you to know a bit about the history of Malacca and Malaysia. The Portuguese came here, the Dutch (who moved on to Indonesia) who were the force behind The Stadthuys, the Clock tower, then the British who ruled Malaysia till 31 August 1957 when it gained Independence. Tourism info has free internet and air conditioner. There is an unerring aura that grabs your senses. Your present is caught in the past; strange. Christ Church beckons, arching into your memory lanes. Queen Victoria’s Fountain – ever majestic; forever sparkling.
