Successfully setting up a new museum

Organisations considering joining the Museum Accreditation Scheme should consider what it means to be a museum. This guide from the Association of Independent Museums addresses the main points required, many of which are contained within the Accreditation Standard. It aims to help groups or individuals in the UK who are thinking about setting up a new museum make some informed choices. If organisations decide to continue with setting up a museum, the guide provides a structure that will help build a strong and successful museum.
