Discovery Boxes

These educational resources are designed to supplement the school curriculum with museum objects. Each box contains artifacts and a teacher's guide filled with information and activities. Each Discovery Box is available free of charge for your classes for a one-week loan. Please be prompt with pick-up and return, and be sure all pieces of the box are accounted for to avoid an assessment for late return or missing items.

Call 710-1185 to reserve your box.
