Be our collaborator today!


In 2017 and 2018, a group of History Talent pupils from River Valley High School partnered with our Audience Managers to co-create a resource for guiding their peers in the ACM galleries. The pupils met their mentors once a month to gather feedback and work on their proposals.


Secondary School Collaboration NYGH


In 2017, six Nanyang girls underwent an intensive, 12-hour training by our Audience Managers, and graduated as student docents for the museum. Since then, they have guided both school and public tours, including in our special exhibition Angkor in 2018.


Secondary School Collaboration Mayflower


In 2018, Mayflower Secondary performed a captivating play using the octagonal gold cup in ACM’s Tang Shipwreck Gallery as inspiration. The play was held at Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall for the school’s annual Aesthetic Night. Student docents were also trained to guide their peers within the gallery.

Should you be interested in a collaboration with us, please email our education team and your e-mail will be forwarded to the relevant manager in-charge.
