Many thanks to the 15 MVM members who came to the museum on Saturday morning. There was a special VIP event for the visit of the Minister of Information, Comminication and Culture, Dato Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim to the highly popular coffins exhibition.
// <![CDATA[// Dato Seri and his wife came and talked to our MVM President Chrissy and thanked the MVM members for all of their voluntary work. Dato Seri was very sincere in his thanks, as was his wife and the National Museums Department Director-General Datuk Ibrahim Ismail.
Chrissy also got a key from the museum department to the new MVM room, which is up in the glass elevator on the museums department side. The room is big and light and there is an additional room of office space for the three department staff who will be helping us in the future.
Our museum tour schedule, and schools group and planning for September’s new training course are continuing as normal. Chrissy and I are meeting next week with the museum staff to work out how they can help with communication and advertising going forwards.
