‘Full Accreditation’ status in the Heritage Council Museum Standards Programme.

Delighted to announce that the award winning Medieval Museum and the beautiful Georgian Bishop’s Palace have maintained their ‘Full Accreditation’ status in the Heritage Council Museum Standards Programme.

MSPI promotes professional standards in the care of collections in Irish museums and galleries. The programme recognises the achievement of those standards through accreditation.

Overview

The Museum Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI) was established by the Heritage Council to benchmark and promote professional standards in the care of collections and to recognise through accreditation the achievement of those standards within the Irish museum sector.

Why Accreditation?

Accredited museums can have confidence they know how to look after their collections and understand the needs of their visitors.

Aims and Objectives

‘Taking part in the Museum Standards Programme is a public promise by each museum to take care of its collection’. Achieving accreditation in MSPI demonstrates that a museum is meeting its promise.’

We’re delighted to have met these high standards yet again!
