The Living Memory Association

Edinburgh's Reminiscence Project • Established 1986

Welcome to the Living Memory Association.

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.

What's on

There is always something happening at The Wee Museum of Memory!
Our next Introduction to Reminiscence Skills training day take place via ZOOM on Friday 30th October from 10am to 1pm. Contact us to book your place.

We host weekly group sessions and publish a monthly reminiscence newsletter. To see all of our upcoming events, connect with us on facebook.

The Wee Museum of Memory

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; 10am-3pm weekdays and 11am-3pm 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.

Thelma Podcast

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.

To know more about our musical journeys, please peek into Forgotten Songs from the Broom Cupboard's blog.

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.
