Rob Gittins, Shropshire Council cabinet member for culture and digital, said:-

“It is always a pleasure to receive an award, but because this award has been down to the high numbers of positive reviews left by visitors it has even more significance.

“The award recognises the consistently high standards and positive experiences delivered by the staff at this stunning venue.

“With regular reviews, praising everything from staff and volunteer knowledge, the quality of the collections, to the exhibition programme and the detail and service provided for special events and weddings, the team and Shropshire Council have a lot to be proud of.

“I would like to thank all the people who have taken the time to post their kind and generous reviews and we look forward to welcoming more people to SM&AG as a result of our award.”

SM&AG is the county’s flagship museum and art gallery and is free to explore. It is located in the old Victorian Music Hall and 13th Century Vaughan’s Mansion in The Square and houses exhibits and information about Shropshire from pre-history to the modern day as well as fine art and temporary exhibitions
