Another room features the jeweller's equipment. Now, everyone who knows antique jewellery in Malacca knows Ban Onn, the goldsmith shop on Jonker Street. This is a family-run business, now moving into its third generation. Check out the corporate video here. It's my first stop every visit to Malacca, and I often succumb to temptation - so it is a good thing that I've not been to Malacca for a few years! Anyway, it was no surprise to see uncle's photo (big-big) on the wall of the museum! I suppose it is reciprocal since there is a large poster of the museum in front of their shop as well.

In short, this little museum may be much smaller than the palatial Mansion over in Penang but it is literally a little gem. So do visit!
The museum also has a very good book for those who want to know more. But there's a useful and informative write-up here.
