Guiding Workshops (for NMV members)

Each year, the NMV holds Guiding Workshops to train potential guides for the National Museum Bangkok.

The National Museum Volunteers was originally established to train guides for the National Museum Bangkok.
The Guiding Workshops are offered in English, French and German.

Over time, many other activities have been added to the National Museum Volunteers, but guiding remains an important focus of our work.

Additionally, this is a great opportunity for other members of the NMV to discover the amazing treasures contained within the National Museum and to learn so much more about Thai Art, Thai History, religion and cultural aspects; a useful foundation for further study.

Attending the Guiding Workshops

The Workshop usually lasts for about two months, with lectures held on Wednesday and Friday mornings.

The Guiding workshop is open to the NMV members.

The lectures cover topics such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Thai history and the evolution of the Buddha image. It provides a knowledge base to support the museum collection.

The lectures are followed by study tours of the museum galleries.
