This more than 300 years old Dutch style shophouse is located within the Core Zone of UNESCO World Heritage Site and is an ideal station for UM visibility to operate as UM-CHRC@Melaka satellite and to reach local community and international visitors and tourists through heritage and cultural programmes.
