The government of Macau Special Administrative Region and the Malacca Historic City Council have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a Macau Gallery and to strengthen cooperation as well as promote mutual tourism and culture.

The Macau Gallery is located only ten minutes away from central Malacca. The building was previously a governmental department of the authority of Malacca built in typical Siam style and is part of the historical heritage in Malacca. This two-storey architecture has an area of about 3,000 square meters.

 The Gallery will showcase the arts and culture of Macau as well as the history of Macau and Malacca.
