Accreditation News

All Accredited museums in the UK have their current award status extended for an additional 12 months.

07 April 2020

NI Museums Council and our UK Accreditation partners (Arts Council England; Museums, Archives and Libraries division of the Welsh government; and, Museums Galleries Scotland) recognise that all museums have closed their sites due to the impact of Covid-19 and in response to Government Guidance. 

To support the museum sector during these unprecedented times, we can confirm that all Accredited museums in the UK have their current award status extended for an additional 12 months.

All future meetings of the Accreditation Panel have been cancelled. 

A list of Frequently Asked Questions has been developed outlining the implications for Accredited Museums and those Working Towards Accreditation.
