The Upside Down House Melaka is a unique exhibition space within Malacca City, where visitors can step into an inverted version of a modern Malaysian house. While Malacca City is well-frequented for its historical landmarks, Jonker Street, as well as the unique Peranakan culture and delicacies, Upside Down House Melaka is a relatively new addition to its list of family-friendly attractions.
Set within a two-story shop house, the gallery is divided into a living room, kitchen, playroom, master bedroom, and bathroom, all of which are fitted with air-conditioning, interior décor, and life-sized furniture which is firmly screwed to the ceiling.
Stepping into Upside Down House Melaka can be quite disorienting as first, but it’s a great place for snapping unique pictures thanks to its vibrant background and array of gravity-defying props such as televisions, sofa, tables, and replicas of local snacks. There are also staff who can help take photos and suggest the best poses during your visit.
