MELAKA: The Melaka Museum Corporation (Perzim) has introduced an entrance pass package for tourists to visit all the museums under its supervision.
For the first phase, the RM30 entrance pass can be used to visit five museums, namely the Melaka Art Gallery, Youth Museum, History and Ethnography Museum, Flor de Lar Mar Maritime Museum and Naval Museum.
“We are planning to introduce the second phase of the entrance pass to cover five more museums, including the People’s Museum, Melaka Sultanate Palace Museum and Stamp Museum.
“This entrance pass not only allows tourists to visit all 20 museums and eight galleries under Perzim’s supervision but also helps to save money,” state tourism, heritage, arts and culture committee deputy chairman Datuk Zaidi Attan told reporters yesterday.
According to Bernama, the entrance fee collected for all the museums can ensure the state heritage buildings or assets are well maintained for future generations.
In another development, Zaidi said historical reenactments would be staged in February in conjunction with Visit Melaka Year 2024.
“These historical enactments will be based on documentation stored in the National Archives and it will be carried out in collaboration with the National Unity Ministry,” he said.
“This effort is aimed at educating the people and tourists about the history of Melaka, instilling a sense of identity and patriotic spirit in the younger generation, and strengthening unity among the people in the state and the country.”
