Mayborn Museum


Discovery Boxes


Discovery Boxes will be available for pick up and drop off on MONDAYS only.

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.
