Loan Boxes

Borrow one of our loan boxes to bring objects from the past into your classroom, inspiring children’s imagination at the start of a project. They also help develop your class’s enquiry skills and are a great tool to support post-visit work.

Boxes contain a mix of replica and real objects, photos, documents and teacher’s notes.
