As part of our outreach programme, we have developed loan boxes which are available for schools and community groups to borrow.

We have a range of loan boxes, created by pupils, for pupils, as part of the Museum2Go project (now ended) funded by The Robertson Trust. Each box contains real and replica items and has been carefully researched by pupils and teachers, working with National Museums Scotland curatorial experts and Learning and Programmes staff.

Each box is available for short-term loan (2 weeks) or long-term loan (a whole term). Pre-booking is essential. Schools within Edinburgh must collect the loan box from the National Museum of Scotland. Schools outwith Edinburgh can arrange for delivery if needed.
