Kits & Hands-On Objects
The museum has many kits and objects available to borrow for educational purposes.
Use hands-on objects to enhance your lessons and help your students explore culture,
science, art, and history.
Museum Kits contain specimens, artifacts, models and activities for a wide variety of ages. Kit materials are designed for hands-on learning and reflect the diversity of the UA Museum of the North’s research collections.
Kits are available during the academic year (August-May). During June and July, kits are not available for check out.
For compact kits designed for homeschool use, please visit the Homeschool Kits page.
Also visit our Virtual Museum page for activities and resources to explore at home!
