Description
Villa Sentosa is a little known tourist attraction in Melaka as it is not an official museum maintained by the State Government. This is a large Malaysian 1920s kampong style of house that is lived in yet open to the public. Actually there are more than traditional Malay houses in Kampung Morten where inside material still well maintained including family artifacts, traditional Malay style furniture, decoration and pictures (including a 100 year old copy of the Quran). It is a living museum where the owner and occupier will happily show people around (although you must take your shoes off before entering). Even it is free, but a donation still available. You should also note that there are a few stairs before the entrance, so could be difficult for those with mobility difficulties.


It is attractively set on the Melaka River, and given the modern development of the area, this sort of house is becoming increasingly unusual, which probably accounts for the fact that it has now become something of a tourist attraction. It is worth the visit as it provides an opportunity to wander round a genuine Malaysian kampong house. However, beware that sometimes tourists arrive by the coachload, so it can be crowded then. This is invariably when a cruise ship is in, so if you want to visit when it is quieter then avoid the days when a cruise liner is in port or the cruise tours scheduled.
