An excerpt from American Alliance of Museums' notice:
“On behalf of the Accreditation Committee, it is my great pleasure to tell you that the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is awarded reaccreditation. This means the museum continues to meet National Standards and Best Practice for U.S. Museums and remains a member of a community of institutions that have chosen to hold themselves publicly accountable to excellence. Through a rigorous process of self-assessment and review by its peers, the museum has shown itself to be a good steward of its resources held in the public trust and committed to a philosophy of continual institutional growth. The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is an impressive organization which excels in the areas of education, research, and preservation. The institution’s work in K-12 education and its IMLS funded “Teaching by Design” program are commendable.”
The American Alliance of Museum’s Accreditation Program is one of distinction in the museum world. AAM’s accreditation process is carried out every 10 years and can take more than a year to complete.
Wright’s Home and Studio and Robie House are the only Illinois museums accredited this year. They join 20 other national museums that have received accreditation through March 2030.
