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.
We are delighted to welcome you again at the Wee Museum of Memory; we are open 10.30am-4pm weekdays and 11am-4pm weekends. Come away in, it's nice to see you!
The free taster session will take place on Friday 21st May 2021, 10am – 11am, on Zoom.
This one-hour session is designed to give you an introduction to our reminiscence training. Our training is designed to help anyone who wants to work in reminiscence. It helps to develop group-work skills, suggests creative activities and how to use resources, and looks at working with people with dementia.
For more information or to book a place, contact John at: email@example.com.
Our next Introduction to Reminiscence Skills training day takes place on Zoom, Friday 28th May 2021 from 10am to 1pm. Contact us to book your place.
Take a look at our Youtube channel, we produce reminiscence videos focusing on different themes. We also publish a monthly newsletter.
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 unit.
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.
As not everyone 'does' online, we've started producing our podcasts on CDs. If you know someone who would like to listen to some memories in this way, please contact us
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.
