INFORMATIONS

Melaka Stamp Museum (Muzium Setem Melaka), also known as Photo Shop or “Sekolah Gambar”, is housed in this old Dutch building. This building previously housed the Old Melaka Museum and was originally used as the residence for Dutch dignitaries living in Malacca. This building was used as a residence until it was completely abandoned after the Second World War.

On 19th March 1954, G.E.W Wisdom, the British Resident Commissioner in Malacca, turned this building into the Melaka State Museum. However in 1982, Melaka State Museum was moved to the Stadthuys building. The Melaka Islamic Foundation (YIM) took over the building and was operating in this building for several years before it was replaced by the Enforcement Unit of the Melaka Municipal Council.

Built during the Dutch period, the Department of Museum and Antiquity have gazetted it as an Old Monument according to Section 15 of the Antiquities Act 1976. This building has the shape and characteristics of western architecture but have the roofs, doors and windows which are distinctly local. The building was constructed using local materials, so were the Malay and Chinese architect. The building was restored by the Department of Museum and Antiquity in 2004 and it was handed over to the Melaka State Government. In 2007. the Melaka State Government with the cooperation from Pos Malaysia decided to set up the Melaka Stamp Museum in this building.
