..." The museum, also known as the Istana (Sultanate Palace), is a replica of Sultan Mansur Shah's palace, the famous Sultan who ruled Melaka from 1456 to 1477."
Muzium Kebudayaan (Cultural Museum) was inaugurated in March 1954 by the then Resident Commissioner of Melaka, G.E.C. Wisdom, C.M.G., in a Dutch house built around 1660. The museum was later moved to the Stadhuys in 1982 before it was finally moved into its own complex in the late 1980's.
The RM2.5 million museum was officially opened to the public on July 17, 1986 by Malaysia's Prime Minister Dato' Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Currently, the museum houses about 1,350 items in the form of artefacts, prints, photographs and drawings which represent the history and cultural heritage of the Malay Sultanate of Melaka and the various communities, which came to settle in Melaka during that period.
The three-storey building is divided into eight chambers and three galleries including chambers of the Royal band, weaponry, decorative arts, emissaries and gifts, a recreation hall, an audience hall and an Islamic hall.
The galleries depict the famous clash between the legendary warriors Hang Tuah and Hang Jebat, traditional costumes and the royal bedchamber. Exhibits include prints and photographs of the Melaka Sultanate, a model of the Sultan Mansur Shah Palace, Malay weapons, Malay traditional wedding dress, jewelleries and brassware.
...A computer is an electronic device that can receive a set of instructions, or program, and then carry out this program by performing calculations on numerical data or by compiling and correlating other forms of information.
The modern world of technology could not have come about without the development of the computer. Different types and sizes of computers find use throughout society in the storage and handling of data, from secret government files to private household accounts. Computers have opened up a new era in manufacturing through the techniques of automation, and they have enhanced modern communication systems. They are essential tools in almost every field of research and applied technology, from constructing models of the universe to producing tomorrow's weather reports, and their use has opened up new areas of conjecture. Database services and computer networks make a great variety of information sources available. The same advanced techniques also make invasions of privacy and of restricted information sources possible, but computer crime has become one of the many risks that society must face to enjoy the benefits of modern technology.
Imagine a world without computers. That would mean no proper means of communication, no internet, and no video games. Life would be extremely difficult. People would have to store all their office paperwork and it could take up an entire room. Students would have to submit course-work and projects hand-written. All graphs...

...Last Sunday, we paid a visit to the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology. It is three stories high and each floor has its theme. The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge holds a world-class collections of art and artefacts from all over the world. Objects ranging from stone tools and pots to sculptures and paintings represent cultures and histories over millennia. Great recent and contemporary works reflect the diversity of peoples worldwide, and the resilience of indigenous cultures confronted by globalisation.
When you step into the museum, you will first see an information desk and a gift shop there. You can get leaflets there which include information about the museum. The museum is divided into two parts. For archaeology exhibits, they are mainly displayed in the permanent gallery on the ground floor. The gallery displays about 1200 objects which illustrate the history of Cambridge. The Arbury Coffin is one of the highlights of the gallery. It contains the bones of a woman, a shrew and a mouse thought to date from the fourth century AD. This coffin inspired the Sylvia Plath poem ‘All the Dead Dears’.
The shrew and mouse bones found in the coffin of a well-to-do Roman woman in Arbury. Her ankle had been knawed.
As you walk up the stairs, you will arrive the Maudslay Hall. It is the museum’s principle Anthropology collection. In this gallery, you can see a...
...IMPACT OF WEARABLES ON DIGITAL MARKETING
Wearables are the current rage in the technology industry. All leading players like Google, Samsung, Motorola and LG have launched wearables and many more are in the race. Google glass has already revolutionized the wearable market. Samsung Gear and Moto 360 are other popular wrist wearables (smartwatches). On the other hand, there are fitness specific wearables like Jawbone, Fitbit, already revolutionized the wearable market. Samsung Gear and Moto 360 are other popular wrist wearables (smartwatches) On the other hand, there are fitness specific wearables like Jawbone, Fitbit, Basis and Pebble. It is estimated that 112 million wearable devices would be sold by 2018. Although the number is less as compared to about a billion smart phones and tablets projected to be sold by 2014, it offers enough impetus for digital marketers to take wearable devices seriously and start investing in ways and means to capture users’ attention through wearable devices. Just as online marketing has become the center of the marketplace, wearable tech could become as commonplace as using a search box to shop.
Digital marketing on a wearable is a totally different ballgame when compared to traditional forms of digital marketing and advertising. A wearable is often a companion device to a main device such a smart watch connected to a smart phone. One of the most critical problems a...
The most important consideration facing the person responsible for securing new works of art or artifacts for a museum is to preserve culture and history. Another purpose is to educate others who would like to learn about these certain subjects. Art demonstrates glimpses of history, or just new styles of art, which serve as inspiration to other artists and people. Artifacts from the past, show a realistic viewpoint of how a certain era of people lived, also showing how our society has advanced throughout time. If I were to open a museum, my main goal would be to enrich the public with information and artifacts from the past. Unfortunately, a museum is a business, and without money a business cannot function. Therefore, museums have to make some sort of profit for them to function. For this exact reason, many museums have lost their way, and now focus more on being a business than on being a museum. Money should never be the main worry of any museum, as the main purpose is to benefit and enlighten society.
Money is not just a struggle or worry for museums, but for any business and person in the world. That is why museums are investing more of their money into shops or stores that will make a profit for them. But, they should be investing money into new art or artifacts that will attract the public to the museum. An...
...MuseumMuseum, institution dedicated to helping people understand and appreciate the natural world, the history of civilizations, and the record of humanity’s artistic, scientific, and technological achievements. Museums collect objects of scientific, aesthetic, or historical importance; care for them; and study, interpret, and exhibit them for the purposes of public education and the advancement of knowledge. There are museums in almost every major city in the world and in many smaller communities as well.
Museums offer many benefits to their visitors, their communities, and society as a whole. As educational institutions, they offer unparalleled opportunities for self-directed learning and exploration by people of diverse ages, interests, backgrounds, and abilities. They are public gathering places where visitors can be entertained, inspired, and introduced to new ideas. Museums enrich local cultural life and make communities more appealing places to live and to visit.
For society as a whole, museums provide valuable intangible benefits as sources of national, regional, and local identity. They have the singular capacity to reflect both continuity and change, to preserve and protect cultural and natural heritage while vividly illustrating the progression of the human imagination and the natural world.
