Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, Dorset, is delighted to announce that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award – for the second year running. This prestigious award, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to the top-performing 10% of establishments – those which consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.
Certificate of Excellence winners are selected using reviews ratings from its visitors – qualifying organisations must maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five. Other factors include the volume and recency of reviews, the length of time a property has been listed, and a property’s popularity ranking.
“We are very grateful to our visitors for the positive reviews and high ratings they give us on TripAdvisor” said Jon Murden, Director of Dorset County Museum. “We are always working hard to improve the museum and one of the best ways to do this is to pay close attention to the independent feedback we receive from our visitors.”
The Museum is currently enjoying an increase in visitor numbers – in 2013 nearly 50,000 people visited the Museum including local residents, holidaymakers, researchers, educational groups and people coming to the many family activities, lectures and music events. The Dorset museum is also moving ahead with a major development project which will transform public access to its collections. Architects Carmody Groarke are assisting with an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund which will be made by the end of the year.
Fundraising activities continue to support the work required in advance of the application. For further information see www.dorsetcountymuseum.org/risetothechallenge
