Our docents and volunteers are the soul of our museum, they help bring the stories behind our artefacts to life. Over the years, NMS’s family of museum volunteers and docents has grown from strength to strength, counting amongst them private oranisations such as Friends of the Museums (FOM), Japanese Docents (JD), Museums Volunteers (MV) and Mandarin Docents (MD), with individuals who are simply passionate about sharing their love for Singapore’s history and heritage by providing weekdays and weekend guided tours in English, Mandarin and Japanese respectively.

They not only promote learning through guided tours, but also through various programmes such as lectures, trails and workshops. They also work very closely with the museum staff on content-related matters and provide useful on-the-ground feedback on visitor experience.

Apart from these groups, our Museum Hosts (MHs) are volunteers who provide valuable services and contributions to the museum like front-desk assistance, supporting the museum’s programmes and festivals, as well as acting as ambassadors of the National Museum and helping to enhance the visitor experience through meaningful interaction.
