The Museum has a collection of over 20 loan boxes available to hire for three weeks at a time for the cost of £15 per box.
We also have a selection of extra items, including a 1950s T.V, available for hire alongside the loan boxes for £10 per additional item; these should be listed in the catalogue. Please state your requirements when contacting the museum.
- To arrange to borrow a loan box you can either ring the museum on 01252 715094 and check that the box is available or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org, Let us know the name of the box and extra items that you would like to borrow and when you would like the box. We will aim to get back to you as soon as possible.
- You will need to pick up the box from the Museum on the date stated on the booking form. Payment for the box can be made by cash or credit/debit card on collection. Payment can also be made on invoice in advance of the booking.
- Please be aware that you will need to allow at least 15 minutes admin time to check the contents of the box and for payment when either arriving or collecting the box. Parking outside the museum is limited so it is a good idea to give the museum an indication of the time you are planning to collect or return boxes so you can be dealt with as efficiently as possible.
- We may issue additional charges if the box is brought back past the due date stated on the booking form, or if there are any damaged or missing items.
