Museum tour in French & English

Posted by Tuan Rumah | 3:31 AM | , | 1 comments »

A team who called themselves as Museum Volunteers Malaysia has taken a huge intiative by providing one-hour guided tour of the national museum in French and English. The tour will start at 9am every Tuesday and at 11am every Thursday, beginning next week.
The idea behind this intiative is to offer better services to the tourists since the museum is shortage of staff at this moment. Each of the volunteers proudly expressed their willingness to volunteer as they can contribute in introducing Malaysia to the world. Besides that, it will help to preserve Malaysia culture heritage. 25 volunteers received their graduation certificates from Museum Department yesterday.
The schedule for the guided tour might vary with the next batch of volunteers, depending on the languages they speak and number of volunteers. The volunteers have graduated after a series of lectures, tests and training. They will share their knowledge on variety of subjects from Peranakan and Orang Asli culture to traditional art forms.

There will also be additional guiding in Malay on Saturdays during the national school holidays.
