Mayor Domenic J. Sarno, Congressman Richard E. Neal, State Senator Adam Gomez and State Representative Carlos Gonzalez joined with Kay Simpson, President and CEO of the Springfield Museums, for a special celebration of a prestigious national honor. The Springfield Museums have been awarded reaccreditation by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM); a distinction shared by only 3% of the 33,000 museums in the country.

Mayor Sarno states, “Congratulations to Kay Simpson and the incredible team at our beloved Springfield Museums.  This significant honor is well-deserved and welcomed.  This is the highest national recognition a museum can earn and is a testament to the wonderful and marvelous institution that is our Springfield Museums.  I want to not only thank Congressman Neal for his steadfast support but also Kay Simpson and our dedicated museum staff and all of the benefactors and philanthropic supporters that continue to give.  Thanks to their efforts, our beloved Springfield Museums remain and major economic draw, welcoming thousands of visitors to our city and boosting the tourism industry not only for Springfield but for the region too.”
