Museum in a Box is an edtech startup based in Hoxton, in London. It started its life as one of a series of R&D projects coming out of Good, Form & Spectacle in London. We incorporated in October 2015, after being so buoyed by reactions to the idea.
We’re a small team based in London and Liverpool, supported by a much wider crew of advisors, talented students and supporters.
