The National Monuments Trust is a Brunanter government organization under the Department of Cultural Affairs tasked with overseeing the administration of Brunant's national monuments. It is also part of the IWO Heritage group.

In Brunant, National Monuments can consist of buildings, structures and other man-made constructions, or natural and joint natural-historic sites that are considered important to the country. All monuments are administered by the Department of Cultural Affairs via the National Monuments Trust.

The current head of the NMT is Cynthia Niemens, daughter of Royal University of Koningstad President Gerard Niemens.


The preservation of state-owned property became an increasingly important issure from the late 19th century on. The first big move towards conservation was the creation of the National Buildings Trust in 1914 to administer state property. After 1918, its focus was directed towards heritage buildings. In 1920, it was renamed National Monuments Trust and the Brunant Markethall was designated the first National Monument that year.

To date, there are over 30 monuments including buildings, monuments, structures, ruins and other sites.
