About Us

The National Heritage Board (NHB) was formed on 1 August 1993 under the former Ministry of Information and the Arts (MITA). Its mission is to foster nationhood, promote identity building, and champion the development of a vibrant cultural and heritage sector in Singapore.

As the custodian of Singapore’s heritage, NHB is responsible for telling the Singapore story, sharing the Singapore experience and imparting our Singapore spirit. With Singapore’s National Collection at its core, NHB curates heritage programmes and presents exhibitions to connect past, present and future generations of Singaporeans.
