museum accreditation

Our museum has successfully retained its Full Accreditation from Arts Council England.

It recognises the hard work our heritage team have put in to:

  • looking after our collection of objects to preserve and protect them for the future
  • developing an engaging programme of activities, events and exhibitions
  • connecting with our visitors
  • providing education and learning activities
  • Meeting relevant standards for policies and procedures.

Lead Councillor for Commercial Services, Cllr Catherine Houston said:

"This is great news for our museum. Our team puts a huge amount of effort into making sure that people have access to and can engage with our collections. I am delighted that their efforts continue to be recognised."

What does the Accreditation Scheme do?

The UK Museum Accreditation Scheme (opens new window) makes sure museums:

  • manage their collections properly
  • engage with visitors
  • are governed appropriately by encouraging all museums and galleries to meet an agreed standard
