The Museum Accreditation Scheme is intended to encourage all museums to meet an agreed standard in how they are run, how their collections are managed and how they engage with their users. To be awarded full Accreditation status is an accolade that Lostwithiel Museum is proud to have achieved in 2007, 2010 and 2014.

In February 2020 we submitted our 4th application to the Arts Council for England for re-Accreditation. Intervention was to come in a guise that none of could have expected ie.the coronavirus lockdown which resulted in the Arts Council museum professionals being furloughed. It has now been confirmed that the new review date for our submission will be April 2021. This is a disappointment but one that we must accept as we are powerless to do anything about the situation.
