Malay Heritage Centre

he Malay Heritage Centre  is a cultural centre in Singapore to showcase the heritage, culture and history of Malay Singaporeans. Located at Sultan Gate of Kampong Glam, the 8,000 square metre (2 acre) centre was launched on 27 November 2004.
The building was once the Istana Kampong Glam (or the Sultan’s Palace) and Gedung Kuning (or Yellow Mansion), and was part of a larger original compound that led to the Beach Road frontage. Sultan Gate has been known as such since the 1950s. The Malay Heritage Foundation, formed in 28 July 1999, embarked on a major restoration project of the Istana Kampong Glam in 1999. Completed in 2004, it reopened as the Malay Heritage Centre.
On the grounds of the Malay Heritage Centre are Gelam trees, the replica of a Bugis prahu or boat; the Pinisi, and information markers on the history of the Bugis people and their trade. The centre houses the Malay Heritage Museum, which preserves and showcase the Malay culture and heritage in Singapore, through historic artefacts, multimedia and diorama displays, and exhibits.
