Malay Heritage Centre (MHC)

The Malay Heritage Centre (MHC) showcases the history, culture and contributions of the Malay community within the context of Singapore’s history and multi-cultural society. In 2015, MHC’s building as the former Istana Kampong Gelam was gazetted as a National Monument. It houses a collection of artefacts that support its focus on Kampong Gelam’s history as a bustling port town integral to the development of the Malay community as well as Singapore’s connections to the region.
