Bring your history lessons to life by hiring a handling box of themed items and resources


Boxes contain a mixture of original objects, replicas, activities, books, sounds, images, information sheets and even dressing up items; can also sometimes be supplemented or tailored with extra information, so feel free to ask. Handling boxes are available to hire at £25 for a 2 week period or for £40 a term (based on a 6 term year) and can be collected from Weston Museum up to 3 days before the hire period begins. If you would like to enquire about or book a handling box, just contact the museum team.

Some boxes are more suited to KS1 and others KS2, but the wonderful thing about objects is that they can be used for many ages and abilities, so this is not a hard and fast rule!
