BELEURA HOUSE & GARDEN ACHIEVES MUSEUM AUSTRALIA ACCREDITATION

Beleura The House and Garden Museum Accreditation
Beleura The House and Garden has been granted Museum Accreditation after a recent visit from Museums Australia (Victoria). Since enrolling in 2008, the Museum has worked hard to meet set criteria from the National Standards of best museum practice. A professional panel of museum experts made a final on-site assessment and compiled a glowing report on Beleura operations.
MAP (Museum Accreditation Program) is a peer review program managed by Museums Australia (Victoria) since 1992. It is funded by Arts Victoria and supported by a large number of Victorian museums, museum professionals and volunteers.

To become accredited, museums spend 2–4 years developing procedures, policies and practice to meet recognised museum standards. Training, advice and information is available to assist museums in meeting these standards.

The Museum Accreditation Program (MAP) is a framework used by museums to improve operations and increase profile. There are 48 museums who are Accredited in Victoria, and 28 working towards Accreditation.

“We are delighted to recognise the hard work and commitment shown by the team at Beleura. Caring for our shared heritage is an important task and by becoming Accredited, Beleura has proven to be a leading museum in Victoria”. Cassie May, Manager, Museum Accreditation Program, Museums Australia (Victoria).

A formal presentation of the Beleura Accreditation certificate, signed by Heidi Victoria MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier & Assisting the Premier with the Arts, will be made at the 2012 Victorian Museum Awards, to be held at the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne, Thursday 2 August.
