Museum Takeaways

We know that not everyone will have the chance to visit the Museum and so, we’ve created four Museum Takeaway Boxes, one for each region which, you can borrow from your Regional Youth Development Officer. The Museum Takeaways contain real and replica objects, games, and activities to help you discover our Charity’s incredible humanitarian history from it’s origins in Jerusalem in 1080, right up until the present day and the life saving work of St John Ambulance.

For more information or to borrow a Museum Takeaway, please contact your Regional Youth Development Officer.
