COVID-19 Update: We are not offering our Discovery Boxes at this time; however, we are working on digital presentations for classroom use. We will announce the availability as soon as they are ready.
The New London Public Museum is looking for new ways to help our educators. The museum contains an amazing collection of artifacts, archives, photographs and natural history specimens. It is a great place to bring your class. However, we also recognize the limits on your time. We want to help you in the classroom! The resources we have to augment your lessons could lead to great collaborations to help our students learn.
NLPM is excited to announce its new Discovery Boxes! Each box may be checked out for two weeks. We ask for a $25 refundable deposit. Boxes must be picked up and dropped off at the museum. For more information, or to reserve a box for your classroom, contact the museum at 982-8520.
