Jubilee assets added to free Museum in a Box resource

Marking the Queen’s historic platinum jubilee celebrations, 10 jubilee-related items have been added to the Royal Mint’s ‘Museum in a Box’.

In addition, the project has been boosted by the donation addition of 30 boxes, taking the total available to 70. In addition to this, many of the boxes will also receive the loan of a Toughbook laptop, kindly donated by Panasonic, to enhance the experience with Jubilee-related additional content.

As a special treat, the first 200 care homes to sign up will also receive a free ‘street-party’ kit including bunting, napkins and flags for residents.

The scheme, which has already reached more than 590 care homes across the UK, is centred around a free-to-loan electronic box, which stimulates interactivity and memory recall for care home residents. Each home receives the box for two weeks.

Content for the reminiscence box project has been developed with kind assistance from The National Museum of the Royal Navy, The Sainsbury Archive, The Postal Museum, The Royal Collection Trust and Hornby.

Jubilee Court Care home in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire, and Queen Elizabeth Care home in Bromley, Kent, are two of the participating homes.
