Our volunteers play a crucial role in making our exhibits come alive for the visitors. With growing numbers of visitors each year, we depend on the contributions of our volunteers to enhance the visitors’ experience at our Museum.

MUSEUM VOLUNTEERS
Volunteering

The Museum Volunteers (MV) comprises of guides from various professions who volunteer their time to conduct scheduled tours in English on weekends as well as on weekday evenings when there are special requests for tours held in conjunction with events/functions at the ACM.


The MV’s mission is to support the National Heritage Board (NHB) by providing an enriching museum experience for the visitor. In return, the MVs are able to enjoy much enrichment through the learning and sharing of knowledge of our heritage and ancestral cultures with museum guests and visitors.


Volunteers who wish to guide weekends and weekday evenings at NHB museums may join the MV group. Training sessions (comprising lectures, field trips) are conducted whenever there is a need to augment the existing number of guides.


For more information on MV, please email museumvolsingapore@gmail.com, or visit the Museum Volunteer's website.
