Memory boxes

Our Memory Boxes and quizzes are designed to spark recollections and encourage reminiscence and conversation. Each of our 44 boxes contains objects, photographs and documents from the Museum collections on a particular theme.

The boxes are free to borrow and are particularly useful to use with people living with dementia. There are two types of memory boxes available:

  • Boxes for care homes, clubs and groups
  • Mini boxes to use at home with an elderly friend or relative

All boxes and quizzes are loaned for two weeks.

Select a box from the drop-down list and click View box contents to see a full contents list.
