Loans Boxes

Loans boxes are a wonderful way to bring history and archaeology into the classroom. The Corinium Museum’s loans box service offers boxes containing real and replica objects with handling notes to help you make the most of the topic. If you are unable to bring a group to the museum, want to take history back to the classroom to reinforce your visit, or are looking for resources to bring an historical subject to life, we have a number of exciting loans boxes on offer. Many of the boxes can be adapted to suit Key Stages 1-9.

Our schools loans box service is designed to enhance learning in the classroom. Loans boxes can be hired at a cost of £15  per week (£10 when booking a school visit) or £55  per half term (maximum booking).
