The Preservation of Monuments Board (PMB) was formed in 1971 with the enactment of the Preservation of Monuments Act on 29 January 1971.  It was transferred from Ministry of National Development to Ministry of Information and the Arts (MITA) on 1 April 1997 as a statutory board under MITA.

The Board is now a statutory board of the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA).

The Board’s objectives are:

  • To preserve monuments of historic, traditional, archaelogical, architectural or artistic interests;
  • To protect and augment the amenities of those monuments;
  • To stimulate public interest and support in the preservation of those monuments; and
  • To take appropriate measures to preserve all records, documents and data relating to those monuments.
