Loan Boxes

Fancy handling Roman pottery made by Harrow’s first residents or ducking for cover in a genuine WWII helmet?

Harrow Museum’s Loans Boxes are a perfect way of making learning more exciting.

Our Loans Box Service provides teachers with the opportunity to develop their teaching across the curriculum with a wide range of historical artifacts, replica objects and useful resources. They inspire a range of classroom activities to help you deliver desired learning outcomes with enjoyment and fun!

The boxes cover a wide range of topics including nine new boxes created especially with Harrow’s history in mind. These boxes are crammed full of information, images and objects related to the Harrow area. Children can get hands on with Harrow’s history by experiencing these boxes.
