We support museums in the South West to gain and maintain Accreditation.

The museum Accreditation scheme sets out the industry standard which enables museums to review and build upon:

  • How you are running your museum
  • How you manage your collections
  • How you engage with users

How can we help?

We can provide advice and support with your queries about the current arrangements and the Accreditation standard itself.

Please contact us using the Accreditation drop down and the best person to answer your question will be in touch.

We have dedicated local area Museum Development Officers to provide advice and connect you to wider networks. Alex Gibson is our Technical Accreditation Adviser dedicated to supporting museums with Accreditation.
