The Classic Boat Museum and Gallery in East Cowes has been awarded Full Accreditation as a Museum by The Arts Council of England.
Joining many of the countries top museums, The Classic Boat Museum was recently visited by an assessor and judged to have demonstrated best practice in a long list of criteria including planning, management, care and conservation, documentation, display and presentation, recording, and customer service.
Jessica Hart, Chair of Trustees at the Museum, said: “We are manned entirely by volunteers and this award, by confirming us as a leader in our sector, gives recognition to the tremendous time and effort put in by so many. Whilst it is always gratifying to get positive feedback from our visitors, this is the ultimate ‘official endorsement’, which we are very proud to receive.”
The Classic Boat Museum is open every Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 until 16:00 located on East Cowes seafront.
