Denver Art Museum Awarded Accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums

The Denver Art Museum (DAM) announces that it has again achieved accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), the highest national recognition for a museum. Accreditation signifies excellence within the museum community to governments, funders, outside agencies and to the museum-going public. The Denver Art Museum was initially accredited in 1972. All museums must undergo a reaccreditation review at least every 10 years to maintain accredited status. Of the nation’s estimated 17,500 museums, 1,005 are currently accredited.
