The Victoria Gallery & Museum has retained its status of Full Museum Accreditation following a review by Arts Council England.
The Museum Accreditation scheme is the UK industry standard for museums and galleries that makes sure museums manage their collections properly, engage with visitors, and are governed appropriately. Retaining Full Accreditation reflects the continuing good practice that the VG&M team is doing.
Accreditation covers all types and sizes of museums and galleries and there are currently more than 1700 museums participating in the scheme across the UK. Arts Council England states on their website that Museums Accreditation highlights how much strong museums matter to the UK:
- Museums are at the very heart of our cultural identity: they’re places for sharing stories, ideas and connections.
- Museum collections are much more than individual objects: they’re irreplaceable public assets. They’re our heritage, and people trust museums to safeguard them for the next generation.
- Museums shape communities: whether that’s by bringing together people with shared interests or providing places and events that draw local communities together.
