Enriching Our Heritage Landscape

The National Heritage Board (NHB) plays a key role in the development of a vibrant and diverse museum and heritage landscape in Singapore, through the cross-sharing of knowledge and expertise with fellow arts and heritage professionals. We endeavour to grow capabilities in the sector and encourage a culture of museum excellence, to lay a firm foundation for Singapore’s heritage that will guide as well into the future.


The Heritage Awareness Survey is a study to assess the interest, awareness, participation, and attitudes towards heritage among Singaporeans and Permanent Residents.


Chaired by NHB, the Museum Roundtable strives to develop a stronger museum-going culture in Singapore through its signature programmes, and the development of museum professionals.


The Singapore Botanic Gardens was successfully inscribed as Singapore's first UNESCO World Heritage Site on 4 July 2015. This was the result of the strong collaboration between the National Heritage Board, National Parks Board, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as the public, community and experts who gave their support for the bid.
