Upside Down House Melaka
Though relatively small in size, there's a lot of room for creative photographs at the Upside Down House, a converted shophouse. Wander from room to room, snapping gravity-defying photos in the kitchen, bedroom, and more spaces. Visit independently from Melaka, as part of a Melaka city tour, or as a requested stop on a private tour. Consider pairing Upside Down House Melaka with Illusion 3D Art Museum Melaka for maximum picture fun.

Upside Down House Melaka is not wheelchair accessible.
How to Get There
Upside Down House Melaka sits on Plaza Mahkota, several blocks south of the Taming Sari Tower (Menara Taming Sari) observation wheel in downtown Melaka. It’s about a 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) walk from the Stadthuys or a short trishaw ride from most downtown locations.
When to Get There
Upside Down House Melaka is open from morning until early evening Monday to Thursday, and it stays open well into the evening on Fridays, weekends, and Malaysian public holidays. A visit is more fun when you don’t have to wait in line to pose for pictures, so try and visit early in the day on a weekday.
How to Get the Best Pictures at Upside Down House
The key to a great upside-down picture is flexibility, so wear clothes that allow you enough freedom of movement to throw crazy poses—and bring your sense of humor. Loose clothes and long hair will spoil the upside-down illusion by flowing towards the “ceiling” rather than the “floor,” so opt for a more fitted outfit with pants or shorts. Visit at a quiet time so you can take plenty of shots before the next group arrives.
