Tring Local History Museum has been awarded Full Accreditation by Arts Council England.
The museum, run entirely by volunteers, now matches up to the best, and largest museums in the UK. The same process is involved whatever the size of the establishment.
Tring’s history is narrated in an entertaining and interesting way in the historic cattle-market building in Brook Street, Tring.
Chairman Tim Amsden said: ‘This is a ringing endorsement of our values and everything we have achieved, and shows how far we have come in the 11 years since the museum was founded.’
The museum is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 3.30pm.
