The Friends of Metheringham Airfield are pleased to see that over two years of hard slog, mainly bureaucratic, have been rewarded by the granting of Full Museum Accreditation standard to the Visitors’ Centre. This prestigious award will open up further opportunities to improve the visitor experience to the centre and enable other artefacts in store to be exhibited in a more interactive environment.
“Following a review of the Accredited status of your museum which was considered by an Accreditation panel appointed by Arts Council England on 21 June 2017, I am pleased to inform you that the panel agreed to award the status of Full Accreditation
It was noted at the panel meeting that the museum has produced a very strong application, with support from Museum Development East Midlands and the museum’s mentor, Polly Wilkinson. The staff at the museum have demonstrated an excellent commitment and dedication towards Accreditation and development of the museum service. Congratulations on this achievement!”
