Photographer's Note

A view of one of the exhibit rooms in the History and Ethnography Museum, a museum in Melaka City, Melaka. This room, which I liked for its length and airiness, houses some mannequins dressed in military uniforms that have played a part in the history of Melaka.

The museum is located inside the Stadthuys building, built during the Dutch Malacca administration period in 1886.

The historical section of the museum displays the history of Malacca from its establishment in 1400 until 1957, the year Malaya gained independence. The ethnography section of the museum portrays the lifestyle and culture of various communities and sub-communities of Melaka including the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians, the Portuguese, the Baba and Nyonya, the Chetti and Chitty communities. Other exhibits include items used in traditional wedding ceremonies, kitchen utensils, musical instruments and collections of ancient porcelain ware, weapons, stamps and ancient currencies.
