Museum recognised in national scheme

DH Lawrence Heritage in Eastwood has been awarded museum accreditation.
The centre has been awarded full accreditation under a new national museum standards scheme, run by Arts Council England.

The scheme sets nationally agreed standards for UK museums in three key areas, including how the museum is run, how it manages its collections and the experiences of its users.

Since entering into a two-year partnership with the University of Nottingham in 2011, the centre has gone from strength to strength, including being named Best Visitor Attraction at the Nottinghamshire STARS Awards 2012.
