The Museum’s loan boxes stimulate curiosity and provide a hands-on approach to learning.
Our range of loans boxes cover different themes but they all typically include objects from our handling/ education collection, photographs and some have ideas for creating bespoke activities.
We have loan boxes that can be hired by schools and care homes for £10 per box for a two week period.
