The permanent exhibition at the casino resort in Macau - MJ Gallery, will display 40 coveted items of Michael Jackson memorabilia, alongside depictions of the most important moments in the King of Pop's life. One of the key exhibits at the MJ Gallery is the stumped up $350,000 US dollars for Jackson's left-handed glove – worn by the singer when he performed his first "moonwalk" dance in 1983.

The opening ceremony of the Gallery, the first of its kind in Asia, was attended by pop stars and locals.

Aside from the exhibition hall, the gallery also consists of a "time tunnel" that showed the most important moments of MJ's music life through pictures and videos, a music video showroom that plays his famous "Billie Jean" MV, and a gift shop. The chairman of Ponte 16 Ambrose So said at the opening ceremony that they have spent a fortune on the collector items displayed at the gallery, and hoped that the gallery will become a tourist attraction at his hotel.
