Object boxes

We are repacking our object boxes to make them safe to loan out during this time.  We’ll update this page when the boxes are ready.

We have a number of artefact and activity boxes that can be loaned out to schools.

These give children the opportunity to experience history ‘hands-on’, therefore bringing lessons to life.

The contents of individual boxes may vary, and the pictures below show a small sample of what a box might contain. Most boxes have between 20-30 objects.

We currently offer the following boxes:

We are also able to develop bespoke resource packs relating to aspects of local history. Please call us if you have a topic you would like to explore.

Boxes cost £10 to borrow for a period of 2 weeks.
