The Peace Museum gains national quality standard
We are very proud to announce that The Peace Museum has been awarded full status as an Accredited Museum by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). The MLA’s Museum Accreditation Scheme sets nationally agreed standards for all museums in the UK. The Peace Museum’s award proves that it measures up, meeting the guidelines on how it is run, how it looks after its collections and the services it provides its visitors. Clive Barrett, Chair of the Board of The Peace Museum, commented: “This award is the result of years of hard work and is a sign of how much the museum has progressed since its beginnings in 1994. It is a great achievement and an honour to receive.” Andrew Motion, Chair of MLA, said: “Being awarded Accreditation is an impressive achievement. It recognises the high standard and service that The Peace Museum provides and acknowledges the hard work of its volunteers and staff.” The Peace Museum’s Accreditation award was presented to Clive Barrett on behalf of the museum by Jayne Tyler, Regional Manager, Yorkshire and the Humber, MLA, at the start of the 2010 Leeds International Olof Palme Memorial Peace Lecture at Leeds Civic Hall on 18 June.
