The Malaysia Youth Museum (Malay: Muzium Belia Malaysia) is a museum in Malacca City, Malacca, Malaysia, which dedicated to the youth of Malaysia and their contribution to the economic and social wellbeing at regional, national, and international levels.[1]

The museum building was formerly used as part of the Dutch Administrative Complex during the Dutch Malacca.[2][3] It was later converted into a post office and subsequently an Anglo-Chinese School in 1931 and finally the museum today, which was officially opened by then Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on 15 April 1992.[4][5]

The museum is located on the ground floor of the building, which houses the Malacca Art Gallery at the upper floor. It is located in a cluster at Bandar Hilir, along with core Malacca historic sites: A Famosa, St Paul's Church, the Stadthuys, Christ Church, the Proclamation of Independence Memorial and the Malacca Sultanate Palace Museum.[6] The museum opens every day except Monday from 9.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
