Testimonials


“The best thing about the box was that you could touch everything, so you could feel it, because I think that’s better than just being able to look at everything.”

FREYA, AGED 8
who used our British Museum box

“This democratises the experience of art.”

ESTHER SPRINGETT
Artist & Collaborator on the Camden box

“We couldn’t be happier with the results, and the Museum in a Box team were fantastic throughout the making process. Their creative advice and practical expertise have been invaluable and the final product has exceeded our expectations.”

JOHN MURRAY
Learning Manager, Special Projects,
Jewish Museum London

“In partnership with Museum in a Box we are able to bring the content off the screen and into people’s hands. The visual, literary, tactile, aural, and digital elements transform I See Wonder and the classroom into a sensorial learning experience—sharing the Smithsonian Libraries’ collections with a new audience and fostering meaning making for students of all ages.”

SARA CARDELLO
Head of Education, Smithsonian Institution Libraries

“It looks great, the postcards have come out really well and sound brilliant. Thank you so much for this, it has been a pleasure working with you.”

JOANNE KINGDOM
Learning Manager, National Justice Museum

“The box looks fantastic!  Really striking and reflects the Bata brand very well!”

SCOTT SULLIVAN
Project Manager, Bata Heritage Centre

“I really liked the fact that [the students] didn’t have an insight into what it was going to be. They had to listen, they had to use a different sense, rather than just looking or sitting at a device.”

ANONYMOUS TEACHER
Auckland Primary School

“So so happy my @_museuminabox arrived this week- so easy to set up and can’t wait for my @UBCiSchool students to use it for our oral history class this semester!”

DR HANNAH TURNER
Assistant Professor, UBC iSchool

“La verdad es que mola ver como un cacharrito @_museuminabox puede servir para que unos alumnos trabajen un tema un curso y para introducir ese mismo tema el curso siguiente. A ver qué vuelta de tuerca le damos este curso.. #PDI de economía circular… “

Cristóbal Álvarez Cervino
Teacher, IES Basella

“So excited the Tower Box is finally here!! Absolutely love it!”

JATINDER KAILEY
Community Engagement Lead, Historic Royal Palaces

I really truly do not understand why every museum doesn’t have one, because it’s just so simple, and yet, it does this amazing job, and you can use it with every audience I can think of that would come into a museum.

Without a doubt, the final part of the Make Your Own process really surprised me, when children try what they’ve made for the first time. That is wonderful.

SUSANA OUBINA
IES Castro Alobre (and Make Your Own pilot)

The Box is different because it addresses access needs, and it’s not written information. Literacy, digital literacy, cost barriers, living in marginal communities… the Box overcomes them.

DR LAURA GIBSON
AEP Lecturer, King’s College London

When [We Shall Overcome] came on she just started singing along with it and just… it was really powerful to see a strong memory triggered. That also brought out other people’s stories of war and family. People who don’t usually talk began talking.

SUSAN DYAR
Director, Monroe County History Center

“Yeah the Box is really fun cause it’s like having playing and learning combined.”
