Ghost Discovery at Ghost Museum, Malacca


Ghost Museum Melaka is a place where you can have fun while learning about ghosts from around the world. It contains local ghosts, western ghosts and even Chinese ghosts. You can also download an app that scans the designated area for AR video experiences. This place has informative boards about ghosts in every exhibit.



The first exhibit is about normal ghosts that are covered with white cloths and are known as a very popular type of ghost. This area uses projectors to give the ghosts a very realistic appearance. Some of the props can also move by the use of motors.






The following area after the normal ghosts area is the Malay wizard area which features a statue of the wizard doing spells and some other statues of the ghosts shown at that area like Toyol and Bajang. There is a place to lie down and take an AR video of a ghost rising from your body.







After the wizard area, we headed to the Thai ghost area which features the hungry ghost, a male ghost that uses rattan rice pans and some female ghosts. There is a big hungry ghost statue that you can take pictures with and it's eyes are moving thanks to the use of projectors. There are many nice photo spots there.



There is a Chinese zombie booth or "Jiang shi" booth after the Thai ghosts. Featuring a throne at the middle surrounded with statues of Chinese zombies, marriage of death and some other ghosts. This area has some good photo spots and costumes to take pictures with too.





After the chinese zombie zone, we are greeted by the Chinese hell zone which features the hell judge's throne where you can take pictures while wearing the robes they provide. In the next room, there is a big cauldron with fake dismembered arms and legs sticked to the sides where you can climb into for photos. At certain times, some mist will be sprayed into the room for a better effect.






One of the best exhibits in my opinion is the mummy exhibit that features a room decorated with Egyptian style. There is an interactive area where you can scan with the AR app to take a video. There are many good spots for pictures like the coffin at the sides which are surrounded by decorations, mummy statues and I really like how that area captures the effect of an Egyptian tomb which are really detailed. Besides the Egyptian objects there is also a ghost hologram that is projected onto a panel of glass where you can stand behind for photos. 










One of the most disturbing exhibits is the human eating werewolves which features a lot of gore and dismembered body parts with a table in the middle surrounded by werewolves eating human flesh. There is also a human torso being cut open where you can take pictures with by putting your head over it. There are some areas on the table where you can stick your head through to take pictures with too. 










Before the exit, there is a small haunted house area with a small jungle and screens placed at the back of windows to show ghosts. It has many great spots for photos as it simulates a real building in a middle of a forest. Moving through that, you enter an area where you can take photos. It was a place for photo printing but it is not in use at the time we are there.
