Red House Left behind by the Netherlanders

The Red House, left behind by the Netherlanders, was constructed in 1650. The building features thick brick walls, bulky hard wood doors, and broad stone steps, which are eye-catching but alien in Southeast Asia. It had been used as a building for one of the governmental institutes until 1980, when it changed its name to Christ Church Melaka. The building houses six museums and displays historical relics from Malaysia, Portugal, the Netherlands, and the UK. Among them is a special museum, which collects the cultural relics of the Malacca Sultanate. Visiting this museum can help you have a more profound understanding of Malacca’s royal families, currencies, navigation, marriage traditions and so on.
