In December 2015 the Medical History Museum gained accreditation under the Museums Australia Accreditation Program (MAP). MAP is a peer review program managed by Museums Australia (Victoria) since 1993. It is funded by Creative Victoria and supported by a large number of Victorian museums, museum professionals and volunteers.
To become accredited, museums spend 2–3 years developing procedures, policies and practice to meet recognised museum standards. Training, advice and information is available to assist museums in meeting these standards.
The Museum Accreditation Program (MAP) is a holistic framework designed for museums to improve operations, build capacity and support community.
