Resources for Schools
WWII and Early Technology, Loan Boxes
By Museum Of Technology Hemel Hempstead
In our experience, being able to touch, feel, and in some cases smell the artefacts encourages debate and a greater understanding of how people managed during the Second World War and of how technology developed.
Supported by a grant from the Museums Luton Hub and Hertfordshire Museums Small Grants scheme, funded by the Renaissance East of England, the museum has been able to put together three Loan Boxes. Some of the contents of the boxes are shown here.
If you would like to borrow the Loan Boxes please get in touch with the museum curator, Rosie Hourihane, on 01442 218381 or 01442 262541. A deposit of £20 will be charged for the hire. Depending on the uptake, a period of two weeks hire is envisaged. A list of items in each box will need to be signed for on hiring and will be checked on return. Terms and Conditions are shown on the booking form.
