Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service awarded to West Highland Museum

The West Highland Museum is very pleased to announce that they have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award given to charitable organisations. It is the equivalent of an MBE for volunteering.

Volunteers have been at the heart of West Highland Museum activities since it was founded almost 100 years ago. However, over the past decade volunteers have made an even more important contribution to the running of the museum when free entry to the museum was introduced in 2011 to increase visitor engagement. Over this period our visitor numbers rose from 9,000 – 60,800.
