As the museum field’s mark of distinction, accreditation offers high profile, peer-based validation of your museum’s operations and impact. Accreditation increases your museum’s credibility and value to funders, policy makers, community and peers. Accreditation is a powerful tool to leverage change and helps facilitate loans between institutions.

In the late fall of 2013 the Alliance will introduce a streamlined reaccreditation process that will maintain its rigor and same high standards while significantly reducing (up to 50%) the time needed for completion.

We have also added more ways to show your commitment to standards and best practices through the Continuum of Excellence.
