The museum building was originally used as the residence for Dutch dignitaries living in Malacca until the end of World War II after which the building was abandoned. On 19 March 1954, G.E.W Wisdom, the British Resident Commissioner in Malacca, turned the building into the Malacca State Museum. However, in 1982 the museum was moved to Stadthuys. The Malacca Islamic Foundation took over the building and used it for several years until the Enforcement Unit of the Malacca Municipal Council took over. In 2004, the building was restored by the Department of Museum and Antiquity and handed over to the Malacca State Government. In 2007, the state government, in cooperation with Pos Malaysia, decided to set up the Malacca Stamp Museum at the building

The museum opens everyday from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m
