The Basics

Visit the museum on its own or as part of a combo ticket package with the Malacca Crocodile Park and/or Zoo Melaka (Malacca Zoo & Night Safari). Allow an hour or two to wander through the galleries and snap photos of yourself with the gravity-defying artwork. Ask the staff for tips on the best poses to make the artworks come to life; they'll even take pictures for you.
