TOURISM MALAYSIA MEDIA CHALLENGE: KL MUSEUM TOUR, REVISITED

TOURISM MALAYSIA MEDIA CHALLENGE:
KL MUSEUM TOUR, REVISITED
15 MAY 2017, WORLD MUSEUM DAY is celebrated in many style. TOURISM MALAYSIA decided to organised a Museum Exploration Day, with a Treasure Hunt Program scheduled with 25 printed media, electronic media and online media for the opportunity to explore various museum in KL City Centre. 

MEDIAS' AT THE ROYAL MUSEUM
TOURISM MALAYSIA collaboration with DEPARTMENT OF MUSEUMS MALAYSIA, with The Treasure Hunt Program, is in hope to be a platform to revive the interest towards museum especially among Malaysian and tourist. In the same time Tourism Malaysia hope to build a much stronger relationship with the Media team.

The Treasure Hunt Program brought the Media Team to explore four main museum, 
  • The ROYAL MUSEUM (Muzium Diraja), 
  • NATIONAL MUSEUM (Muzium Negara), 
  • MALAY WORLD ETHNOLOGY MUSEUM (Muzium Etnologi Dunia Melayu), 
  • ORANG ASLI CRAFT MUSEUM (Muzium Seni Kraf Orang Asli)
It gave the Media Team the opportunity to have a look closer at what is display in each museum, activities that is available when on special occasion, but what is more important will be of knowledge for the future generation and a remembrance down memory lane for the older and current generation. 
THE ROYAL THRONE
Another interesting exhibition is the 'Raja Kita' Exhibition that was just launch recently.  It showcases the private collection, of the YANG DI-PERTUAN AGONG.  And for whom who had the chance to visit the ROYAL MUSEUM, where all the private collection is on display will be at awed as these is an up-close personal with all the collection, the ritual and how it look like in the old castle (Istana Lama) where it use to be the former residence of all Malaysia's YANG DI-PERTUAN AGONG. 

The exploration of all four museum is based on the treasure hunt questionnaires prepared by the DEPARTMENT OF MUSEUMS MALAYSIA curators. 

The Treasure Hunt started from The ROYAL MUSEUM, with locating the right objects and putting up the answer online via social media. Another step in promoting and educating public on what is displayed in the museum. After completing the task in the Royal Museum, the hunt continues in the NATIONAL MUSEUM with the opportunity to ride the KL HOP ON HOP OFF , a bus shuttle that services rides around KL for tourist with an open deck seater.

History is a timeless collection through time, and what is done and spend by the Department of Museum Malaysia is not cheap and takes time in preservation. It is all about who we are and sharing that with the world is something we should be proud of. Knowing that some countries exist but with no history to look back at is sad. Knowing that the future generation will not be able to know what exactly happen and how. 

Treasure what we have and value it by bringing that knowledge back to our children and their children. 

CLOSING OF KL MUSEUM TOUR, REVISITED 
What is a program without a closing, and since it was a Treasure Hunt, each team is of course given a token for their effort. Our many Thank You to TOURISM MALAYSIA for a fun time spend and the effort to build a closer relationship with Media.
