7:50am Saturday 21st September 2013 in News
WORCESTERSHIRE County Museum at Hartlebury Castle has maintained its accredited status in the latest review by Arts Council England.
The endorsement was also given to the two other Museums Worcestershire sites, Worcester Art Gallery and The Commandery.
Arts Council England give accreditation when a national standard has been met or exceeded.
Philippa Tinsley, senior curator for collections and interpretation said "This is great news for Museums Worcestershire. We value highly our ability to deliver a quality museums service looking after our collections and responding to visitor needs.
“Accreditation confirms that we are still achieving this and gives us the opportunity to make it even better in the future."
About 1,800 museums across the UK participate in the scheme to ensure museums deliver a quality service.
Museums Worcestershire has been recognised for providing a high standard of customer service at its three sites by ensuring staff are friendly and helpful.
Accreditation is reviewed every two to three years and museums have to supply evidence that they are achieving the national standards and continuing to improve.
