Shirley Chambers, Department for Communities presented Full Museum Accreditation certificates to Somme Museum, Carricfergus Museum, Garvagh Museum, and Tower Museum. Their commitment to governance, collections care and visitor experience has ensured their maintenance of the Accreditation Standard. We hope that this will enable the continued development of these museums as valued resources for both visitors and the local community. Accreditation is a national standard which gives confidence to all stakeholders. To find out more about Accreditation contact Tríona at or Tel: 02890550215
