The Farmland Museum is a fully Accredited Museum. This is a scheme managed by Arts Council England that 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. We are one of over 1700 museums across the UK to partcipate in the scheme.
Full Accreditation Status is awarded to a museum for three years, after which they are invited to provide evidence to demonstrate continuing compliance with the Accreditation Standard. This focuses on how the museum is run, how they manage their collections and engage with visitors.
The Farmland Museum was awarded the continued status of Full Accreditation on 7th March 2019. Something which we are extremely proud of!

The Museum Accreditation scheme is the UK industry standard for museums and galleries. It tells everyone involved with a museum that they’re doing the right things to help people to engage with collections and protect them for the future. The Museum Accreditation scheme does this by making sure museums manage their collections properly, engage with visitors, and are governed appropriately.
