Dear all

We have a couple of poems written by local schoolchildren in response to some of our objects, which I'd like to be able to record and play in the galleries at our Prison & Police Museum. I'm looking for a simple, inexpensive way of doing this and wondered if anyone could advise on a push-button system of playing audio. I have a vague memory of someone once telling me about "tin cans" for playing audio, but I might have dreamt that as I can't find a mention online! 

Very grateful for any advice or help

Many thanks
