Scilly’s museum is of a high standard. That’s the view of the Arts Council of England, the body that judges the quality of 1,726 collections around the UK.

Their national accreditation scheme started in 1988 and is considered the benchmark for assessing performance, rewarding achievement and driving improvement to enhance the visitor experience by recommending changes.

Their assessor visited the museum and recommended that the St Mary’s attraction should retain full accreditation, which is the highest mark it could receive.

It is the second time the charity has assessed the museum, which was launched in 1967 and relies heavily on volunteers.
