Museum in a box

The Museum Service offers a range of resources for schools to borrow. Museum in a Box is a school loans service which provides a series of purpose-made travelling themed boxes. These are available to all schools in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.

Each box contains a range of original artefacts and specimens, resource materials and a 'Teachers Handbook' which includes ideas for handling activities for the children, and information to support learning in different areas of the curriculum. Information sheets on each artefact or specimen are also provided.

Details of the boxes can be found in our schools brochure.

Boxes can either be collected from School Library Service, The Annexe, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY2 6ND or be sent to a library near your home or school for collection.
