Malay Heritage Centre Tours

Malay Heritage Centre
Not just for history and culture buffs, the Malay Heritage Centre is a must-visit attraction for anyone interested in learning about the rich heritage of Singapore’s Malay community. Set in a grand former royal palace, you’ll see galleries focused on the history of Kampong Gelam, along with an interesting collection of artefacts from the National Collection and the wider Malay community.

Built 160 years ago, the former Istana Kampong Glam was once the royal seat of the Malay sultans in Singapore. Beautifully restored to its former glory, the Malay Heritage Centre sits within well-preserved grounds that can be explored as part of a Kampong Glam and Sultan Mosque walking tour.

Did You Know? Entry into the Malay Heritage Centre is included on the Singapore Ultimate Attractions Pass, which allows you to explore more than 25 of the city’s most popular attractions across two, three, or five days while saving money on individual ticket prices.

Practical Info
