The Michael Faraday Museum at the Royal Institution was assessed by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) in July 2009 and was officially Accredited on 20th September 2009.

MLA's Accreditation Scheme sets nationally agreed standards for UK museums. To meet the requirements of the scheme, museums must demonstrate that they achieve clearly defined standards relating to governance and management, services for users, visitors facilities and collections management.

As an Accredited museum the Michael Faraday Museum is committed to continuous improvement, we are currently working to improve access to and interpretation of our collections both front of house and behind the scenes.
