Immerse yourself in incredible buildings, collections, stories and experiences from the tales of Ipswich and Colchester’s turbulent past, to treasured childhood toys and vintage fashions.
Where will your adventure start?
Look around one of England’s most important heritage sites or follow the story around a beautiful Georgian building taking in domestic life and childhood in Colchester over the past 300 years. There is also a chance to get closer to nature and find out about wildlife habitats, biodiversity and climate change.
I would highly recommend the Colchester Museum loan boxes to any education practitioner who is looking for a hands on and realistic resource for children of any age.
We have borrowed the ‘Toys’ box, which really engaged and interested all of the children in my class. The discussion that came out of the toys we were looking at and handling was priceless.Laura Free
