MELAKA: The Melaka Museum Corporation (Perzim) is restructuring 20 museums and galleries to make them more appealing to visitors, says its general manager Mohd Nasruddin Rahman.
He said the move would also involve the closure of its less popular museums and many exhibits relocated to other museums, especially in the Banda Hilir area.
Four museums hav been closed in two months during the exercise.
They include Muzium Alor Gajah, Galeri Melaka, Muzium Al-Quran and Galeri Batang Tiga.
“Their closure means we will place them in the other museums.
“For example, the exhibits in Muzium Al-Quran at the Al-Azim Mosque were moved to Muzium Islam and Muzium Dunia Melayu and Dunia Islam in Bandar Hilir, ” he said after launching the closing of the 2019 “Sleepover at the Museum” programme here yesterday.The one night programme kicked off yesterday at the Hang Tuah Centre involving the participation of 67 students from SMK Pulau Sebang, Alor Gajah; SMK Sungai Rambai, Jasin, both in Melaka; and SMK Sri Serdang, Selangor. — Bernama
