Overview

Singapore's cultural heritage is preserved here in the nation's corporate memory. Established in 1968, the National Archives of Singapore has a selection of archival materials available for public viewing. Listen to interviews with prominent figures and the man in the street recounting Singapore's history through their collective memory. Watch newsreel from the 1960s, or browse through the collection of more than 850,000 still images dating as far back as the late 1800s. From rickshaw pullers to historical buildings that have been bulldozed away, these pictures document the social and economic landscape of Singapore over the years. Check out the exhibitions that take place in the Lobby Gallery. Admission is free.
