Using a Loan Box is a great way to bring a little bit of the Museum right into the classroom. On a limited basis, we can create a Loan Box for your class that contains artifacts from one of the many cultural groups represented in our Museum galleries.
A Loan Box can be borrowed for up to one month by school districts and libraries within driving distance of the Penn Museum. It contains 10-12 items, each with its own information card, and general information for the teacher/facilitator to make effective use of the materials.
Loan Box Themes
Loan boxes can also be custom created to fit a school or library's needs.
