EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Angel Mounds State Historic Site received reaccreditation from the American Alliance of Museums, the highest national recognition bestowed upon museums.

All accredited museums must undergo a reaccreditation process at least every 10 years.

Angel Mounds was initially accredited in 1988.

“The reaccreditation process is truly a team effort and showcases our dedication to be a top museum system in the nation,” said Cathy Ferree, president and CEO of the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites. “We’re honored to be recognized by the American Alliance of Museums as relevant, visitor-centric and well-positioned to educate visitors through our collections, programming and statewide focus.”

Of the estimated 33,000 museums nationwide, only about 1,100 are currently accredited.
