Houstonian: Sam Houston Museum gets national accrediation

The Sam Houston Memorial Museum has been awarded the highest honor a museum can receive--accreditation by the American Association of Museums. Accreditation certifies that a museum operates according to standards set forth by the museum profession, manages its collections responsibly and provides quality services to museum visitors. Of the 8,000 museums nationwide, only some 750 are accredited.

The Sam Houston Memorial Museum is one of only four accredited museums at Texas universities, joining facilities at the University of Texas, Texas Tech and Baylor.

"We hope the people of Texas share our pride in having earned this prestigious honor," said Patrick Nolan, director of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum.
