We believe that reminiscence can bring people together, regardless of their background or age. It’s a process of sharing, where we learn about other people’s lives. Some life experiences can be unique, others common to us all.
Come and visit us at our second unit in Ocean Terminal, in partnership with The Spirit of Leithers. This new space is dedicated to Leith related images and knowledge. Opening times are 10.30 until 4pm weekdays and 11am to 4pm at weekends.
Our home is The Wee Museum of Memory at Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre, Edinburgh. It’s something a little different, a ‘hands on museum’. We are open to public everyday; 10.30am-4pm weekdays and 11am-4pm weekends.
You can also find us in Livingston, at our West Lothian museum.
We run reminiscences groups and work with schools, please contact us to join a regular session or arrange a visit. If you want to run your own reminiscence group we have memory boxes that you can borrow.
We launched Thelma Podcast in March 2019. We describe them as Records and Reminiscence because that’s what it is.
A mixture of archive recordings from over the years, and music from our huge collection of donated 78 and vinyl records, so what better use can they be put to than our very own podcasts.
The Living Memory Association, which was established in 1986, is an Edinburgh based group that aims to bring people together through reminiscence.
If you appreciate what we do, please help us to continue our work in reminiscence. We're looking for volunteers to help, with hours to suit yourself seven days a week, all ages welcome.
The Living Memory Association needs funds to support its work. Any help would be very much appreciated. With thanks.
