Congratulations to Porthcawl Museum who have been awarded Full Museum Accreditation Status for the third time. The award is reviewed every four years.
The standards are set by the Welsh Government in partnership with Arts Council England. In being granted this accreditation, there has been a recognition that Porthcawl Museum has once again attained the national standard in museum management, collection care and public service.
Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones said “I am delighted that Porthcawl Museum has achieved full accreditation. This is a great tribute to the many hours put in by the volunteers who run the museum. My congratulations to all those involved. The town can be very proud of its museum and the people who help to run it.”
He added “I recently paid a visit to the Museum to see the ‘War in the Air’ Exhibition. It was a very interesting and informative visit where I learnt more about the role that Stormy Down played during WWII.”
