Put your hands on history with these engaging learning resources for any age. Memorial Boxes are filled with real and replica uniforms, equipment, artefacts, and more.

Memorial Boxes can be used to invigorate classroom lessons, inspire historical investigation, and add meaning to commemorative activities. They can also be adapted for use as a therapeutic tool in an aged care facility or as an interactive display in a community museum.
