The Malaysia Youth Museum (Malay: Muzium Belia Malaysia) is a museum in Melaka City, Melaka, Malaysia. The museum is dedicated to the youth of Malaysia, and their contribution to the economic and social well-being at regional, national, and international levels.
The museum building was formerly used as part of the Dutch Administrative Complex during the Dutch Malacca. It was later converted into a post office and subsequently an Anglo-Chinese School in 1931. It was finally turned into a museum and was officially opened by then Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on 15 April 1992.
The museum is located on the ground floor of the building, while the upper floor houses the Melaka Art Gallery.
It is located in a cluster at Bandar Kilir along with core Melaka historic sites: A Famosa, St Paul's Church, the Stadthuys, Christ Church, the Proclamation of Independence Memorial and the Malacca Sultanate Palace Museum.
The museum houses documents and information related to various Malaysian youth organisations locally and internationally.
The museum opens everyday except Monday from 9.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
