American Alliance of Museums Accreditation

The Museum of Science & History achieved its most recent accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) in 2011. Accreditation is a rigorous process that examines all aspects of a museum’s operations. To earn accreditation, a museum first must conduct a year of self-study, then undergo a site visit by a team of peer reviewers. Only 776 of the country’s 17,500 museums are AAM accredited. MOSH has been continually accredited since 1983.
