Lyman Museum accreditation reaffirmed by the American Alliance of Museums

The Lyman Museum’s accreditation has again been reaffirmed by the American Alliance of Museums, the highest national recognition afforded the nation’s museums. Accreditation signifies excellence to the museum community, to governments, funders, outside agencies, and to the museum-going public. The Lyman Museum was initially accredited in 1976, and it is one of only 25 museums to be continuously accredited since then. All museums must undergo an accreditation review at least every 10 years to maintain accredited status.
