The Hovercraft Museum Achieves Arts Council Accreditation

The Hovercraft Museum is pleased to announce that it has achieved full accredited status with Arts Council England.

Administered by Arts Council England on behalf of the UK Accreditation Partnership, Accreditation is the benchmark for well-run Museums and Galleries.

It means that The Hovercraft Museum is properly managed and governed to the nationally agreed industry standard and shows the museum takes proper care of its collections, sharing them with visitors and keeping them safe for future generations.

Accreditation opens up exciting funding opportunities, allows museums to host touring exhibitions and gives access to professional advice and support. It also gives confidence to donors and sponsors who may wish to support the museum in preserving heritage and inspiring future generations.

Accreditation covers museums of all types and sizes – from the smallest volunteer-run museums to national museums – and more than 1,700 museums are currently taking part in the scheme across the UK.

“We are absolutely delighted and honoured to receive the notification that the museum has been awarded Accredited status.  It is an amazing result and a true representation of the journey the museum has been on over the past few years.”

Louise Jenkins, Chair of Trustees at The Hovercraft Museum
