Stefan and Dave share with us one of the many new features to expect when the National Museum of Singapore re-opens in December 2006.

"We have created for the National Museum of Singapore the first outdoor interactive audio guide on mobile phone in the world... What makes it different is that you are able to not only hear about the three architectural features of the Museum (via the pleasing voice of Programming Manager Katharyn Peh), but you are also invited to leave your feedback on the buildings, express your opinion on them, and what they mean to you or to Singapore's history.

We've left these recording options open-ended so that our audio guide is not merely a conduit of information, but a dialogue between museum and community. We will save the best recordings and make them available to future visitors to the museum."

I have been looking forward to its reopening since year 2004. Liking the work that you have done too. But I am not really a heritage blogger, though I enjoy going to some of the heritage sites.

My email address is oceanskies@hotmail.com

Yes, I'm a volunteer at the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, and I'm generally interested in heritage - natural, cultural, historical etc.

Looks like Heritage SG is getting more active these days. That's terrific! I've been subscribed to the feed for quite a while, and there are now a flurry of posts.

Keep it up!
