Students will now be able to get a hands-on approach to learning, thanks to the Boone County Historical Museum.

“Teacher Trunks” are boxes that contain a variety of real and reproduction historic artifacts and documents. Each trunk will focus on a particular era or event in history. The items in the trunks will be used for up close learning in the classroom.

Teacher Trunks are available for teachers at any school or home school organization to rent from the museum!

Available Trunks

  • Illinois State Symbols
  • Fossils and paleontology
  • Native American Life in Northern Illinois
  • The Holocaust*
  • The Pioneer Woman
  • WWII Artifacts

* Items donated by the United States Holocaust memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
