We are currently refreshing our loan boxes.  The below themes will be available to book from September 2022.  If you wish to reserve a loan box, please contact the Museum store to arrange when you would like to loan.

Each exciting box contains A3 laminated photos, objects from the collection, replica artefacts and a resource pack with class and group activities.

A charge of £20 per box for a 2 week long loan.  To request an Object Loan Box booking form, please email or call us on 01442 879525

(You may book loan boxes for longer than 2 weeks, but charges will apply)

Our Talking Box is now available!!  We have had Museum Resources for schools for many years, but now for the first time we are using modern technology.

Five mystery objects are contained in this box, when they are placed onto the device, audio will play.  Our talking loan box prompts children to write a story based on one of the objects from the Museum’s collection. The box begins the story, – how will the pupils finish it?

If you are interested in loaning this or any of our loan boxes, please contact the store or 01442 879525
