The Sultanate Palace Museum is a replica of the fifteenth century palace of the Sultans who ruled Melaka, based on court records of the time. The original palace stood on the other side of St Paul's Hill in the area where the Town Square is today, and was torn down by the Portuguese when they took over Melaka.
The wooden palace reconstruction is now used as a cultural museum, with displays of the various ethnic groups who contributed to Melaka's early trading success, as well as rooms depicting how the palace may have looked in daily use.
The Sultanate Palace is open every day from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm. Admission is RM 2.00 (0.41 USD). See the St Paul's Hill page for location information.
