Edinburgh's Reminiscence Project • Established 1986

Welcome to the Living Memory Association.

We believe that reminiscence can bring people together. 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.

The Wee Play Hub & The Wee Hub Lounge have reopened their doors!

We are delighted to say The Wee Play Hub & The Wee Hub Lounge have re-opened their doors from Wednesday to Sunday, 11am - 3pm on the 1st floor at Ocean Terminal.
Our new unit is smaller, brighter, warmer and full of charm. We can't wait for you to come and join us in our new home. Pop in on your next trip to Ocean Terminal and come and see us, all welcome!

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’, open to public everyday; 10.30am-4pm weekdays and 11am-4pm weekends.
You can also find us in Livingston, at our West Lothian branch.

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.
