SINGAPORE: Volunteers will be offering guided tours at the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) this weekend.

It is the first of its kind collaboration between ACM, Madrasah Aljunied and the National Institute of Education (NIE).

The group comprises 16 Malay teachers in training at NIE and seven students from the madrasah.

Supported by the Malay Language Council, these tours will take place on September 7 and 8 to mark the launch of Malay Language month, which will be held at the museum.

The museum says the tour trail has been specially designed by the museum and will showcase objects that highlight the fascinating links between the Malay language and culture with the wider Asian region.

Conducted in the Malay language, these tours aim to bring out the essence of the stories behind the chosen objects.
