    We are a small Museum in Yangon that appeals to locals and tourists. We are all about education. Help is needed primarily with, online marketing, social media and SEO. Past experience is desirable. Artists and creative types are also needed. You will be immersed in the Myanmar culture. You will see your work on display. You will be working with our local staff and myself. I am a retired American, working as the Curator of the museum. We also have a silversmith shop making beautiful amber/silver jewelry. The marketing of jewelry is also important.

  • Help


    Writing ability is paramount as our main goal is education. Knowledge about e-commerce, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn etc is needed to set up and develop a promotional program for promoting our Museum. We would like at least 2 days of volunteer work up to 5 days would be great. Travelers only get 28 days to explore the country. So you will still have plenty of time to travel.

    What else ...

    I have traveled all over Myanmar and can offer very good advice on what to see and do that you will not find in any guide book. I can suggest a route to travel throughout Myanmar but it would be best to talk to me before booking your flight to Yangon. There is an expat community here with many activities or just hang with the locals.
