Loan Boxes

The Museum’s loan boxes stimulate curiosity and provide a hands-on approach to learning.

Our range of loans boxes cover different themes but they all typically include objects from our handling collection, photographs, background information and ideas for activities.

We have seven loan boxes that can be hired by schools for half a term:

  • Dress Like a Miner
  • Miners at Work
  • Miners Strike 1984 – 85
  • Mining Homes
  • Mining Jobs 
  • Victorian Homes
  • Victorian Work 

Please note: the loans boxes are currently unavailable until further notice
