Abstract: The eroded sense of national identity amongst Singaporeans is a key concern of the state of which it is determined to resolve. Given that national monuments have the potential to reverse the situation by providing for a sense of rootedness and history, there is a necessity to study the prevailing levels of cognition as well as the attitudes towards the cognition of national monuments to determine if other factors might affect one’s cognition of national monuments. Working on the premise that generational related attitudes do affect cognition, this study examines if the correlation is strong. A questionnaire survey of 260 respondents selected from a public housing estate and the city centre yielded the prevailing attitudes and cognition levels people had towards national monuments. The results showed that while there was a positive correlation between attitudes and cognition, the correlation was albeit weak. A short presentation of what other factors might affect one’s cognition of national monuments through a frequency table followed and the study concluded with the recommended that if there was to be better cognition of national monuments, then a careful crafting of outreach policies and a review of preservation policies have to be carried out.
