Indian Heritage Centre

The Indian Heritage Centre is the first museum in Southeast Asia to focus on the diverse heritage of the Indian community. The four-storey architectural gem stands in the heart of the historic Little India precinct. It comprises permanent galleries featuring five themes, a special exhibition gallery, as well as educational and activity spaces that provide an immersive learning experience for all visitors.

In keeping with IHC’s aim to be a focal point for the community, its thematic galleries showcase the diverse stories of the various groups within Singapore’s Indian community, and their rich links with the global Indian diaspora.

The galleries are chronologically arranged to span the period from 1st century CE to the 21st century. Visitors can learn about the historical links between the Indian sub-continent and Southeast Asia, as well as the experiences of South Asians in Southeast Asia, in particular, Singapore. They will also be introduced to the pioneers in Singapore’s Indian community and their contributions to modern Singapore.
