History is as important to the nation as individual memory is to each person. It records events of national pride as well as lessons in nation building. Be it great moments of achievements, times of disunity, or even errors in judgement - all are woven together in a tapestry that is uniquely ours. It is this fabric of past events that makes us distinct from all other nations and is something all of us want to share.
As custodian of the nation's history and heritage, the National Heritage Board (NHB) examines the nation's past - for the benefit of the future. Through displays,exploration, analysis, preservation and education, the Board hopes to continually and actively promote understanding and appreciation of our heritage.
