Museum School Loan Collection

The Museum School Loan Collection exists to give children an opportunity to learn about objects in the classroom.

We have an amazing collection of over xxx objects which your school can borrow to use in the classroom to support the delivery of the national curriculum in an innovative, exciting and hands-on way.

Object handling allows children to use all their senses in developing an understanding of a topic - whether handling a replica Roman helmet or a Victorian child's clothing.

The boxes are available to borrow each half term and schools can select items from across the range of objects.

Our objects range from ancient to modern and subject areas such as art and design, natural history and textiles.
