The Malaysia Youth Museum (Malay: Muzium Belia Malaysia) is a museum in Melaka City, Melaka, Malaysia.[1][2][3] The museum is dedicated to the youth of Malaysia,[4] and their contribution to the economic and social well-being at regional, national, and international levels.[5]

History[edit]

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.[6]

Architecture[edit]

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.[7]

Exhibitions[edit]

The museum houses documents and information related to various Malaysian youth organisations locally and internationally.
