The Malay Heritage Centre (Malay: Taman Warisan Melayu; Jawi: تامن واريثن ملايو) is a cultural centre and museum. Located at Kampong Glam, Singapore. It showcases the culture, heritage and history of Malay Singaporeans.
The Malay Heritage Centre is a recent moniker for the building. Built between 1836 and 1843, the palace was originally designated the royal seat for Malays by Sultan Ali Iskandar Shah; however, he never lived in it, having passed away before its completion. Instead, his son, Tengku Alam, lived there for nearly five decades. The structure is distinctly Singaporean, combining English Palladian architecture with traditional Malay styles. It was designed by Irish architect George Drumgoole Coleman, whose other work includes the Old Parliament House, now The Arts House. The palace was surrounded by a small village that housed the palace’s servants and the Sultan’s family.
The Malay Heritage Centre is the prime spot in Singapore if you want to learn and explore the culture, heritage and traditions of the Malay Singaporeans. The Malay Heritage Centre was once the Istana Kampong Glam (Sultan’s Palace). Through exhibitions, diorama display, artifacts, handicrafts and multimedia, the Malay Heritage Centre illustrates the Malay heritage and culture in Singapore. There are six galleries in Malay Heritage Centre.
