Proclamation of Independence Memorial (1 May, 2009)

The Proclamation of Independence Memorial (GPS: 2.19189, 102.25089) is the site where the independence of the then Malaya was proclaimed. It is located in the Malacca Club, a gold-domed building built in 1912, and renovated in 1985 to house exhibits related to the country's struggle towards independence.

Also on display are memorabilia and records related to the early history of the Malay Sultanate. Among the permanent exhibits are historical pictures, manuscripts, videotapes, films and slides of events leading to the Declaration of Independence at the nearby Warrior's Field on Aug 31, 1957. A 1957 Chevrolet used to transport Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, the country's first prime minister is also parked here.
