The Royal Malaysian Navy Museum is right across the street from the Melaka Maritime Museum. It displays the salvaged remains of 19th century ships that foundered or sank in the Melaka Straits. Originally sited in Lumut it is also known as the Muzium Tentera Laut Diraja Malaysia (TLDM).
Besides the collection of ships, the museum also has more modern exhibits ranging from military uniforms, medals and weapons to communication devices, safety gear and emblems used on these vessels at the time. Opened in 1995, the museum was designed to educate the public on the role and contributions that the Royal Malaysian Navy plays. There is a series of documents chronicling the group’s founding, development and activities. The entrance fee to the Melaka Maritime Museum allows you access into the Royal Malaysian Navy Museum.
