Loan Boxes FAQs

You can download our full loan box list here.

Is it possible to be flexible with the date of pick up/drop off?

Possibly, we are taking bookings on a Saturday – Saturday basis in the first instance. If we don’t have another booking directly before or after your booking we can look at pick up/collection dates closer to the time by prior arrangement.

How much does a loan box cost?

You can borrow a loan box for £5 a week, Saturday – Saturday.

How long can I borrow a loan box for?

We ask that you borrow a loan box for a maximum of 3 weeks in the first instance to give other schools the opportunity to use the resources. If you would like to continue to use it after this period, we can look at extending the loan if the box has not been requested by another school at that point.

Are the loan boxes available for reminiscence sessions?

Yes. Our boxes are often loaned to local care and residential homes for just this purpose, contact Museum staff for guidance on making the best topic selection.

Do you have Early Years loan boxes?

Yes we do. There are 3 topics available; Sensations, Outside and Wash Day.

Please contact the Museum team to book one of our loan boxes, or to find out  more.
