Friends of the Museums (FOM)
Friends of the Museums, Singapore (FOM) is a non-profit society which provides members with opportunities to learn, share and experience Asian art, history and culture through myriad activities.
We also support Singapore museums and heritage-related organisations with volunteer guides and docents, for whom we provide well-developed FOM museum docent training specific to each establishment. For the professionalism and efforts of our volunteers, FOM has been consistently recognised as a Supporter at the Patron of Heritage Awards presented by the NHB.
If you would like to train as an FOM docent, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
