Melaka Umno Museum is located along Jalan Kota, in Bandar
Hilir, which is the museum belt of Malacca. The museum showcases historical
exhibits related to the founding and struggles. Among the items displayed are
old photographs, letters and other documents. The reason to site the museum in
Malacca is, among others, because Umno was founded in that state. Also, being
the brainchild of Malacca Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam, it is
part of the plan to build 21 museums in Malacca – certainly a plan that pushes
for quantity over quality.
