2:40pm Sunday 20th October 2013 in Local
A BROMSGROVE open air museum has received an award recognising its education programmes.
Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings, in Redditch Road, Stoke Heath, has been awarded its sixth Sandford Award for the quality and excellence of the educational services it provides during school and group visits.
The museum is one of only a handful of UK attractions to have received the prestigious award six times.
Among the others are the Tower of London and Blenheim Palace.
Dr Tracy Borman, Sandford Awards' chief executive, said: “Avoncroft's award is very richly deserved.
“Our judge was extremely impressed by the quality and range of the education programmes on offer at the museum.
“Avoncroft has displayed and maintained excellent standards of heritage education since 1988 and opportunities abound for people of all ages to take part in themed day events and courses that bring the buildings to life.”
Tracey Ayre, from the museum, added: “Our educational services and museum facilities have been scrutinised against some of the largest and most well- known heritage establishments in the country and we have met their high standards.
“I am very proud of what we have achieved and a huge thank you to all our education team".
