The enthusiastic response to the project from those within the museum community such as directors, educational facilitators, curators and conservators has been rewarding. They have responded to our sincere commitment to establish a museum of the highest standards. Adhering to the Heritage Council’s Museum Standards Programme For Ireland (MSPI) www.heritagecouncil.ie is a priority for us at the Museum of Childhood. Clear guidelines exist to ensure best practice in constitution and policy along with management, care, exhibitions and access. A full report is being prepared in this regard, and relevant documentation and policies will be in place before any loan or exhibition is undertaken in the museum.
