Jul 15, 2022 | Award

13 museums were celebrated at a ceremony in Kilkenny Castle on Wednesday 13th July having achieved official accreditation under the Heritage Council’s Museum Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI) for 2021. Established to promote professional standards in museums, selection under the MSPI is a major accolade with accredited museums considered to have attained excellence across a range of areas. Shackleton Museum who had been awarded Maintenance of Full Accreditation in 2020 were mentioned along with a host of other museums which unfortunately due to the Covid Pandemic were unable to have an in person awards ceremony as at the time we celebrated through online facilities. Congratulations to All.
