Museum Accreditation

February 1st, 2018 Posted by Development, News No Comment yet

The Centre is currently seeking museum status to protect and preserve the valuable collections held in its care. Achieving this status will be a real benefit to the Centre as we develop. We are actively seeking people with an interest in curating to work with us on this.

A little bit of history has been made as our Chair ,Tony Elliston, and Bob Clow have signed a 25-year lease on the Harwich Town Station buildings. The signing of these documents means the collection can remain intact, in Harwich and secure over the long-term.
