I think it’s free – no price is mentioned on their blog – one can hope.
The ‘Held in the Hand’ box looks like a lot of fun, and the museum service have a very positive quote back from the first school to use it.
The objects include some unusual items such as a tooth fairy calculator, an alien seed pod, a suit of armour for a small bird and a beach comb. Other sculptures are untitled leaving their interpretation open to whoever handles them.
Held in the Hand Box
Michelle at the museum service sent me this ..
There is a small charge for borrowing the artworks, see: http://www.leics.gov.uk/artworks.htm for full details of costs and insurance.
But the small charge is definitely worth it!
