Loan Boxes Terms and Conditions

To borrow museum resources schools first have to join the membership scheme. If you book and collect a resource without being a member you are agreeing to become a member and your school will automatically be invoiced for the annual membership fee.

  • Each school may borrow up to TWO loan boxes for one week at a time. If the box is available for a second week (when you come to collect it) we can extend the loan for a further week.
  • Box loans are from 12:45pm on Saturday to 12:30pm on the Saturday of return.
  • Loan boxes contain original artefacts and replicas, whereas resource boxes only contain replicas.
  • Boxes must never be left unattended in a vehicle.
  • Boxes are allocated on a first­-come, first-­served basis.
  • Boxes can be collected and returned anytime during our opening hours, but please allow 15 minutes before closing.
  • Boxes can be collected and returned outside of opening hours by appointment, please call us to confirm we will be available to see you.
  • If you have any problems about delivery or collection please telephone the museum immediately.
  • There is a £25 charge for late returns.
  • There will be a charge for lost or damaged items based on the value of the object and the cost of repair/replacement.
