Home > Kuala Lumpur Attraction > Malaysia Tourism Centre - Pusat Perlancongan Malaysia

The Malaysia Tourism Centre (MTC) is located within a building in Kuala Lumpur, which is both an architectural and historical landmark. Built in 1935, the main building served as the residence of a wealthy mining and rubber estate tycoon, Eu Tong Seng. Its architecture is typically colonial reflecting the era during which it was built.

In 1988, the then Ministry of Culture, Arts and Tourism refurbished the main building, added two wings to the existing building and renamed it the Malaysia Tourist Information Complex (MATIC). Opened to the public since mid-August 1989, MATIC offered a wide range of facilities and services to assist tourists in planning unforgettable holidays in Malaysia. It also enabled them to experience the essence of Malaysia within the Complex through the various cultural shows and demonstrations. On February 16, 2001, the name was changed and the Malaysia Tourism Centre (MTC) or also known as Pusat Pelancongan Malaysia, was born.

A one-stop tourist centre

Malaysia Tourism Centre is driven by the vision to place Malaysia on the global map as one of the finest tourist destinations in the world. The various services and facilities offered by MTC include the tourist information counter, tourist police counter, Internet access to its tourism e-portal, Saloma Bistro & Theatre Restaurant, Saloma Retail Centre, ATM machine, money changer, a luxurious lounge called the Selasar Waiting Lounge and a ticket counter for the Transnasional Executive Coach.

The tastefully refurbished colonial building in which MTC resides offers a striking contrast to its modern surroundings within the heart of Kuala Lumpur. A mere walking distance to our world-renowned KLCC and situated within the vicinity of our world-class hotels such as the Renaissance and New World Hotels, Concorde, Crown Princess, Grand Maya, Sheraton Imperial, Mutiara Kuala Lumpur, Equatorial and Istana, MTC is within easy accessibility to all local and foreign tourists.Apart from the excellent facilities, MTC organises a line of regular programmes throughout the year such as musicals and dance performances on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 2.00pm to 2.30pm at its Mini Auditorium.

Tickets are sold at RM5.00 for adults and are free for children below the age of 12. Guests are also entertained with Japanese films at the Mini Auditorium on every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.

MTC is also the ideal venue for art and culture connoisseurs. A variety of performances ranging from drama, theatre, musicals, dances and exhibitions to traditional games and competitions could be staged here. The schedule for these performances is displayed on the electronic board located behind the landmark sculpture of a betel-nut platter, a symbol of the Malay heritage.
