Even though it stands as a city filled with pragmatic individuals geared towards fast-paced economic development, Singapore has much to offer in terms of reconciling the past with present and future generations, as well as a growing scene in the arts and culture. The pure economically-driven development of post-independence Singapore has given way to a more holistic view that values the importance of preserving the rich heritage and culture of the nation and promoting Singapore as a world-class venue for the arts.

Museums and performance theatres are typically of a high standard, especially with extensive redevelopment of more historic venues around the city centre and with new developments targeted at attracting international casts and audiences alike.
