Horsham Museum & Art Gallery is closed. Despite the Government’s announcement of revised social-distancing guidelines, we will remain closed whilst plans are put in place to allow us to re-open the museum safely and with an improved customer experience.

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 (training is provided to new borrowers for £15 per person)
  • Mini boxes to use at home with an elderly friend or relative (a refundable £10 deposit is required)

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.
