A MUSEUM group could be eligible for a funding boost after winning a high-profile cultural award.
Brighton and Hove Museums has been accredited by Arts Council England – the standard by which all well-run galleries and museums are required to meet.
This opens up greater financial opportunities for the organization with the possibility of new traveling exhibitions.
Hedley Swain, Chief Executive Officer of Brighton and Hove Museums said: “The Accreditation Standard is a nationally recognized benchmark of well-run museums.
“Having this standard is one of the reasons that British museums are of such high quality and are held in such high esteem around the world.
“I am delighted that all of our venues have achieved accredited status and I am grateful to the Arts Council England for their support.”
The Brighton and Hove Museums recently announced their new name, previously known as the Royal Pavilion and Museums Trust.
The group operates the Royal Pavilion and Garden, Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, Hove Museum of Creativity, Booth Museum of Natural History and Preston Manor and Garden.
