    As you walk southwards along Jalan Laksamana you will see the Malaysian Youth Museum on the left hand side of the road. The museum has been opened since 1992 and contains many documents that are related to Malaysian youth organisation, as well as photographs of various leaders, uniforms, awards and trophies. The building used to be an administrative building from the old days of the Dutch, before it was converted into the post office and later in 1931 a Chinese - Anglo school. It is a red building and upstairs is an art gallery with some paintings and sculptures.

    Malaysian Youth Museum

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Malaysian Youth Museum is housed in a historical Dutch building that used to be part of the Dutch Administrative Complex. The building was also used to be a school (Anglo-Chinese School) and the General Post Office of Melaka before being converted into the museum. (A small post office is still in operation at the other end of the building).

    As its names imply, the museum is dedicated to the youth of Malaysia. Among the museum exhibits are documents, information and paraphernalia related to local and international activities of various Malaysian youth organizations. Photographs of past and present youth leaders, uniforms worn by members, awards and trophies received, and handicrafts made by members of youth organizations and youth co-operatives are all displayed at the museum.

    Entrance Fee:
    Adults: RM1.00
    Children/Students: RM0.50

    Open from 9.00 am - 5.00 pm daily (closed on Monday)
