Collection / Delivery

Your Museum in a Box order can be collected, free of charge, from the Museum Collections Centre or for an additional cost we offer a delivery service. 

Collecting your Order

Museum Boxes can be collected from the Museum Collections Centre on the first Tuesday of each half term between 3.00pm and 5.00pm. This date is subject to change and will be confirmed by email in advance.

If you do not collect your Museum Boxes, you will still be charged for your booking.

Museum Boxes must be returned to the Museum Collections Centre on the last Tuesday of each half term between 3.00pm and 5.00pm. This date is subject to change and will be confirmed by email in advance.

There will be an additional charge for late return of Museum Boxes. If you have any unexpected issues with returning the loans boxes, please get in touch with the Museum in a Box administrator as soon as possible.

Address

25 Dollman Street, 
Nechells, 
B7 4RQ

The Museum in a Box loan service has its own car park, around the side of the Museum Collections Centre, when you turn off Dollman Street it is immediately on your right.

Delivery Service

We operate a delivery service for Birmingham and the surrounding areas (up to 25 miles by road from B7 4RQ), whereby you have your loans delivered to your school. They are also collected at the end of the half term.

This service operates at a charge of £40.00 (+ VAT) per half term to cover costs.

On arrival at the school or organisation, the Museum Boxes will need to be signed for by a member of staff. This does not have to be the staff member that ordered the boxes.

All borrowers must have loans boxes ready at their reception desk from the Tuesday of each loans collection week. If boxes are not available when the collection van arrives you may be charged an additional collection fee if the waiting time exceeds 10 minutes.
