Maritime Museum @ Flor de Lamar

This museum is constructed as the replica of the sunken Portuguese ship Flor De La Mar. Visitors can get closer look at Melaka from the famed Malay Sultanate of the 14th century to the Portuguese era, the Dutch era and the British era. It comprises Samudera Museum Phase I – Flor de Lamar (Replica Ship), Samudera Museum Phase II, Royal Malaysian Navy Museum and KD Sri Terengganu ship.

The Flor de Lamar is located at Jalan Quayside, Banda Hilir and near the mouth of the Melaka River. Also in front of Medan Samudera (handicraft & local products shop). Just a few minutes when you are in a walking tour or you also can take a trishaw ride to be there. For me, a tour on foot is the best way to get up close to appreciate the magnificent facades such as museums, gallery, mosques, churches and the historical fort all around Banda Hilir, the heritage site.

The ship is measuring a height of 34 meters and a width of 8 meters. The museum focuses on the maritime history of Melaka and the golden age of the Melaka sultanate as the Emporium of the East. All the museum exhibits articles used by seamen of yesteryear and some sunken treasure hauled up from another shipwreck, the Diana. Two new wings built to the Maritime Museum Complex house artifacts from the Royal Malaysian Navy and the World Wide Fund for Nature. The Royal Malaysian Navy also displays a former navy boat, KD Terengganu and a helicopter, WASP MK1, outside the Complex.

  2. Turun susur Ayer Keroh, start daripada Ayer Keroh Pun Senang. Bermalam disitu. Ada beberapa hotel spt Puteri Resort, INB Resort, Seri Warisan, Ayer Keroh D’ Village dan MITC ANCASA. Sampai je dari JB terus check in dekat Ayer Keroh boleh pegi Taman Buaya, Mini Malaysia dan Taman Rama-Rama. Malam baru pegi Zoo sebab 26hb tu hari Jumaat ada Zoo Malam.

    Esok baru pegi Sekitar Bandar Hilir tgk Muzium, naik menara taming sari, eye on malaysia and shopping kat dataran pahlawan. Esoknya checkout trus naik highway keluar simpang empat pergi waterworld petang terus balik JB…
