Hang Tuah Centre @ Melaka

For local,when I mention about Hang Tuah, I'm sure you are familiar with it. Even one of our rail station is named after him, Hang Tuah station located at Loke Yew. He was Malacca Malay hero and his story was being written in our History text book in secondary school. Hence, this Hang Tuah centre is a reference centre that displays Hang Tuah superiority as an admirable figure. Hang Tuah's journey of life from his childhood until adolescene were based on Malay history and Hikayat Hang Tuah.  



Ticket fee:
Adult RM5
Children (below 12 years old) RM3
Open from 9am-5pm

 
This complex also furnished with a mini auditorium that can be used for theatre, film and video screening, cultural performances, seminars also others.
 
 

It contains 5 houses which represent the Malay warriors which are Hang Tuah, Hang Lebat, Hang Kasturi, Hang Lekir and Hang Lekiu which had worked with Malacca government before. It displays the superior and uniqueness of Malay architecture through a refine technique and unique interpretation which are full with symbolic manners. Each house is equipped with silat court to allow activities to be conducted such as silat training, culture and so on.
