This museum was the home of Baba Chan Cheng Siew (1865-1919). The interior decor of the house has Dutch, Portuguese, Malay, and Colonial influences, which make the peranakan home unique. Lavish Blackwood furniture from China, inlaid with pearl and marble, greet visitors in the formal reception hall. Set above them are 5-meter high silk embroidery of Chinese symbolism. A unique set of stairs made of solid cenggal wood leads to the second floor.

A’ Famosa Fort (Porta de’ Santiago) and St. Paul’s Church

There is a staircase from Stadthuys that goes up the hill to St. Paul’s Church. It was first built by the Portuguese, originally known as the Chapel of the Mother of God. After the Dutch invaded Malacca, they reconstructed and renamed it to St. Paul’s Church. When the Christ Church was established, the Dutch turned St. Paul’s Hill into a burial ground for their noblemen.

At the foot of St. Paul’s Hill is the remains of A’Famosa Fortress built by Portuguese admiral, Alfonso d’Albuquerque to protect the Portuguese position in Malacca.
