Museum in a Box - Night and Day Box
Boxes are currently available each school term for set loan periods of three weeks. Museum in a Box can be sent to and collected from any educational institution within New South Wales.
The Night and Day box is a resource designed specifically for Early Childhood groups. The topic was chosen to complement children's fascination with creatures that they find and hear in their environment. It includes a great variety of real specimens, insects embedded in resin, finger puppets, handmade kingfisher and bat wings, puzzles, posters and books.
