Outreach activities for schools

Bring the museum experience to your classroom

If you can’t bring your class to the collections, why not bring the collections to you? 

We have two inspiring in-school object packages available:

Museum in a Box – for Premium Member Magical Museums Schools.
Pop-up Exhibitions – for Premium Member Hull Curriculum Schools.

These exciting in-school experiences offer everything you need to explore fascinating objects, create your own displays and inspire your learners!

Museum in a box

(Magical Museums Members)

Bring learning to life with our Museums in a Box. Specially curated for your classroom, our themed boxes contain hands-on historical items, real artefacts and replica objects.

You’ll also receive professional display equipment, digital resources and more – everything you need to make a museum experience in your school. All that’ll be left to do is invite your visitors! Are you ready for your grand opening?

Please note: Museum in a Box is available to all Premium level Member Magical Museums Schools. You can book one Museum in a Box project per year as part of your package. We have a wide range of boxes covering different themes, from Ancient Egypt to World War Two

Pop-up Exhibitions

Get curious as a class with our pop-up exhibitions. These professional-quality kits include everything you need to put on a show – you just choose the topic and we’ll bring the goods.

Kits include eye-catching interpretation boards, visual display panels and life-size character cut-outs. We’ll also supply artefacts (original and replica) related to your topic, and plinths to display them on.

Please note: Pop-up Exhibition kits are available to all Premium level Hull Curriculum Schools. You can book one exhibition per year as part of your package.
