Harlow Museum & Walled Gardens has received full accreditation status, a UK-wide industry standard for well-run museums and galleries.

The accreditation means that Harlow Museum & Walled Gardens operate to professional standards, care for their collections, and make them accessible to visitors. The benchmark is administered by Arts Council England on behalf of the UK Accreditation Partnership.

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.

Harlow Museum is a service provided by Harlow Council. This achievement has only been possible due to the museum’s staff commitment, endurance and the passionate support of the museum volunteers.
