Loan Boxes 

Did you know that Craven Museum offers loan boxes from our collection for free?

Our Discovery and Reminiscence boxes can be used with a variety of groups, schools, community groups, and care homes. The boxes contain a mixture of real and replica objects, with supporting material and suggestions for activities. 

  •  Discovery Boxes

Our Discovery boxes can be used to inspire in the classroom, to encourage your class to discover and learn through engaging with real and replica objects. Supporting material and activity ideas are also provided.

  • Reminiscence Boxes

Our Reminiscence boxes can be used by care homes, history groups, and community groups. Each of the Reminiscence boxes come with supporting material and ideas for discussion, as well as notebooks to encourage sharing of stories invoked by the boxes and their contents. 

If you are interested in borrowing one of our loan boxes, or would like to know more about them, please contact Lizzie Dawson, Community Heritage Curator
