The Farmland Museum is a fully Accredited Museum.
The Accreditation Scheme sets out nationally agreed standards for UK museums.
To qualify, museums must meet standards on how they are managed, for the services they offer and how they care for collections.
The Accreditation Scheme is managed by Arts Council England.
Full Accreditation is awarded for three years at which point museums are invited to provide a return to demonstrate continuing compliance with the Accreditation Standard.
The Farmland Museum submitted its most recent return in October 2014 and was awarded the continued status of Full Accreditation on 30 July 2015.
The museum will submit its next return in July 2018.
As part of the Accreditation Standards the museum has to have a Forward Plan, a Collections Development Policy (previously known as an Acquisition & Disposal Policy), an Access Statement, an Equal Opportunities Policy Statement and a Sustainability Policy. All these are available below.
