“Our Museum Volunteers are continuously learning through their research and focus events so as to improve visitor experience beyond the written explanations in the museum. They are passionate about the museum and may stimulate deeper interest in various subjects. In this way, the visitor will find the visit meaningful and worth the while, as evidenced by the many favourable reviews we have received on Tripadvisor,” according to a statement from Museum Volunteers JMM.
If you have always wanted to be a guide, the Museum Volunteers team is looking for new faces to join them.
You should be 18 years old and above, and able to commit to being on museum guide duty once a month for a minimum of two years. All nationalities are welcome.
The training provided (in English, with a separate training programme for Japanese speakers) will cover the museum’s galleries, various aspects of Malaysian history, people and culture. It requires research on selected topics and honing your presentation skills.
