Glasnevin Cemetery Museum have been awarded Interim Accreditation in the Museum Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI)
We are delighted to have been awarded Interim Accreditation in the Museum Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI).
Well done to Historian Conor Dodd and team for the hard work involved to achieve this accreditation.
In the short period since its establishment the Museum has won public and professional accolades for its building and displays, and is now, through engagement with the MSPI scheme, consolidating its position with regard to the care and scope of its collections. The Glasnevin Trust are to be congratulated on the exceptional improvements that have been made to the collections store. The Trust are also to be congratulated on the thoroughness of the systems they have developed for collections documentation, condition monitoring and care. At first assessment these areas were very basic, but are now well developed and supported by a useful Documentation Procedural Manual, a range of monitoring systems, and an experienced Care of Collections Museums Assistant.
It is a credit to all involved at the Glasnevin Cemetery Museum that such a clear and compliant application has been made. It shows a substantial engagement with the MSPI standards at policy and procedural levels; and has been achieved by a very small professional team with the support of the Board. The assessors were very impressed by the highly professional approach adopted and made particular reference to the work completed to determine the future development of the Museum's collections.
