Directions to Malay Heritage Centre
The beautiful 169-year-old building is located just next to Sultan Mosque in Kampong Glam. Once home to Malay royalty it is now a museum telling an impressive story of the Malay culture. It was designed by George Coleman, the architect of other historic buildings such as the Old Parliament House.
The museum houses 337 artifacts, of which 289 are shown for the first time and occupies around 2,900 sqm of space. Over two levels and 6 sections, it offers a wonderful cultural journey, honoring the past through its exhibits, programmes and activities while acting as a vital heritage institution for the Malay community in Singapaore.
The first gallery acts as the reception area of the house and introduces Kampong Glam as a port town, tracing Malay trade roues on a nearly 6m long map.
Wall portraits along the corridors show the lives of key Malay pioneers. Also on display here are medallions, guns and life-size silhouettes.
- Living and working:
The multimedia simulation 'Coffeeshop talk' covers historical events and issues relating to Malays at several 'table installations'. You can also find 33 models of boats as well as items used in homes and trades.
- Language, literature, publishing
This gallery shows the role of Kampong Glam as a literary hub for Islamic books in the 1960s with several printing presses and bookshops in the area. On display are several Malay publications such as magazines and novels.
- The arts
Visitors can listen to songs tracing the evolution of Malay music or flip through replicas of vinyl records with old covers. Relax in one of the comfy cinema seats and enjoy the theater and film showcases of Malay performing arts such as the first Malay film made in color.
Here you will find contemporary Malay works from filmmakers such as Ghazi Alqudcy.
