Melaka Umno Museum is located along Jalan Kota, at the foot of St Paul's Hill, in the museum belt at Bandar Hilir, Malacca. The museum showcases historical exhibits related to the founding and struggles. Among the items displayed are old photographs, letters and other documents. The reason to site the museum in Malacca is, among others, because Umno was founded in that state. Also, being the brainchild of Malacca Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam, it is part of the plan to build 21 museums in Malacca - certainly a plan that pushes for quantity over quality.
