Reopened on September 1st, 2012, the Malay Heritage Center exhibits the culture, history and heritage of the Malay Singaporeans. Malay Heritage Center is located at the Sultan Gate in Kampong Glam and is a museum and cultural centre. It is made up of several magnificent bungalows, set in a beautifully landscaped garden. The original two-storey building used to belong to the local Sultan and was known as the Sultan's Palace or Istana Kampong Glam.
There are six permanent galleries in the Malay Heritage Center, which are spread over two levels. These galleries house various exhibits, displays and artifacts which show the contribution of the Malay community to the history of Singapore. These beautiful artifacts have not only been collected from Singapore's national community but are also personal contributions from the Malay Community. The grounds of the Malay Heritage Center are wonderful, and have beautiful fountains surrounded by 'Gelam' trees. The grounds also have a lovely replica of a 'Pinsi' boat, which is a traditional boat of the 'Bugis' people. There are several information markers on the grounds which provide visitors with more information on the 'Bugis' people and their trade. The Malay Heritage Center also organizes various workshops, programmes and temporary exhibitions related to Malay culture and heritage.
