Accredited Museums

Museums already in the Accreditation Scheme

Museums are periodically required to provide evidence that they continue to comply with the Accreditation Standard through the returns process. Existing participants will be invited to provide a return through a staged roll out

There are currently 43 Accredited Museums in Northern Ireland which are detailed in the documents below:

Guidance documents to support you in your return can be found on the useful documents page. Returns should be undertaken through an online application called Grantium hosted by the Arts Council.

Museums can now register and start preparing applications on Grantium using the Acess Grantium button in the 'Get Started' section of this page.

Step by step guidance to using Grantium tailored for Accrediation is available in the 'Help using Grantium' section.

If you have any technical queries about using Grantium our customer enquiries team can  provide user guidance and support.

To get started on Grantium, museums and galleries will first need to set up a user account and applicant profile if they haven't already used this before. once validated, they'll be able to start working on their application or return on Grantium.

The new terms and conditions for the Scheme have also been published. These are completed electronically as part of the declaration on Grantium when making a return or application so they don't need to be signed offline and sent in.
