Put your hands on history

Memorial Boxes are an engaging learning resource for any age. Filled with real and replica uniforms, equipment and artefacts, these versatile packs can be used to invigorate classroom lessons, inspire historical investigation, and add meaning to commemorative activities. Memorial Boxes can be adapted for use as a therapeutic tool in an aged care facility or as an interactive display in a community museum.
