  • Beautiful museum with well preserved machinery filled with history. The tour guide was very engaging and knowledgeable in his trade. Overall the best hidden gem in all of Melaka. Perfect for typography lovers and anyone who appreciates good design. Can't wait to visit again soon!
  • We had the great opportunity to go by The Royal Press when we made our visit back from Melbourne, Australia. Greeted by cheerful people at the door, the team (especially our tour guide, Hannah) was very informative and took us on a tour to explain all the different types of machines available to print letterpress. I am amazed by how well the print items have been kept (The Royal Press was opened back in the 1930s) and it has made us appreciate the little things now, knowing that in the earlier days, it takes a long time, effort and hard work to get the news printed. If you are ever looking for a place to visit in Melaka, I would definitely recommend you to go to The Royal Press. You will be amazed!
