Discovery Boxes

Pembrokeshire Museum Service has two distinct schemes whereby we loan resources to individuals and groups for education and enjoyment. These are Discovery Box and Decades.

Discovery Box- a free loan service designed primarily for educational use and so Pembrokeshire schools are given priority when it comes to requesting resources. Of course, other groups and individuals can request the packs when they are not being used by schools. Discovery Box currently contains three strands – History, Faith and Eureka Science. Packs are usually lent for a half-term and contain real and replica artefacts as well as complimentary resources, such as books, posters and activity sheets.

Decades- A reminiscence scheme run by the Museum Service for use by local individuals and community groups. Decades covers the years between 1900 and 1989. Each Decade includes a battered suitcase containing real artefacts from that decade, and an accompanying resources box consisting of books, CDs, portable DVD player and an MP3 recorder. There is no strict time limit on the borrowing of resources and in many ways Decades is a less formal scheme than that of Discovery Box.
