We offer a selection of loan boxes which tie in with our school sessions at Ordsall Hall and our sister site Salford Museum & Art Gallery and are directly relevant to the collections we hold.

Each box can be borrowed for up to two weeks at a time and must be booked in advance.

The boxes we offer are:

  • Victorian Children
  • Victorian Home
  • Toys through Times
  • The Tudors
  • We are also currently able to offer a World War One loan box

These boxes get booked up very quickly so we recommend booking at least a term in advance to avoid disappointment.
