Bringing Malaccans Together and Melaka to the World
Tourists make beelines for Melaka to admire its distinctive historical architecture and unique, generations-old traditions. But a recent mushrooming of new attractions with modern – even futuristic – enticements is affording visitors a novel perspective on one of the oldest cities of the Straits of Malacca. So, if you’re planning a visit to the city centre soon, consider extending your stay and expanding your itinerary to include the following destinations:
The Shore Oceanarium Melaka Oceanarium Melaka affords visitors an interactive, 3D experience of marine and terrestrial ecosystems. Its innovative, fun and educational showcases include an Interactive Touch Pool, live jungle and marine exhibits, a Scheduled Feeding Show, and a 3D Interactive Theatre.
Upside Down House Melaka It’s a topsy-turvy world at the Upside Down House! Experience what Spiderman feels like and explore different parts of a realistic modern home – including its fully-furnished living room, kids’ bedroom, toilet and kitchen – while walking on the ceiling.
Magic Art 3D Museum Melaka Have fun messing around with optical illusion art that makes for great picture backdrops. Showcases are divided by themes – such as ‘Angkor Wat’ and ‘the Arctic’ – and visitors can perform great feats such as ‘battle giant marine monsters’ and ‘leap over deep crevices.’
Photographfie Art Gallery Melaka A fun mixture of the Upside Down House and the Magic Art 3D Museum, Photographfie (a combination of ‘photograph’ and ‘selfie’), this ‘3D Illusion Gallery’ lets visitors ‘lose their heads’, be ‘stabbed’ by metal rods, climb living room walls and ‘shrink’ their partner.
