Queensland Museum Loans

Country Loans Service

Museum Loans brings museum resources to the heart of Queensland communities - homes, classrooms, libraries and meeting forums/places with 34 regional borrowing centres.  Country Loans are all object-based themed kits encompassing the areas of natural history, anthropology, geology, prehistoric life, physiology and social history with accompanying educational materials.

As many of our borrowers are from Queensland schools our educational materials combine our expertise in object-based learning with current Education Queensland curricula and offer opportunities in all Key Learning Areas.

The themed kits available from different regional centres vary from term to term.
