Museum Negara Field Trip

Yesterday we went to the Museum with a group of homeschoolers. This is the 3rd time in 2 years we went to the museum. Another big improvement. Thumbs up! Now they have a volunteer program (mostly expatriate wives) where volunteers will bring groups of children on a walkthrough of the museum and highlight the important events of the Malaysian history. It is a 2 hour program where children follow the volunteer around the museum and work on some activities and worksheets as they do the walkthrough.  After that the children went to the activity room for some play dough time. They even have a mini excavation site for students to explore! Too bad, we were told that it is for older kids because sharp tools are involved. Certainly an educational trip. Adults Rm2 entrance fee and children are free.
