Coming soon: creative reminiscing, memory trail for families, events and activities for carers
We are excited to announce Brand Memories, a new wellbeing programme created to enhance the lives of people affected by dementia. Starting in early 2019, the Museum will offer a range of activities, education and volunteering opportunities for people living with dementia, their families and carers, and healthcare professionals.
LIVING WITH DEMENTIA
You are warmly welcome to join us for creative reminiscing sessions at the Museum. Our experienced guides bring the museum displays to life with the help of products, sounds and scents from the past. These sessions take place before we are open to the public, to keep the environment peaceful.
The sessions are free of charge, but booking is essential. Group bookings are welcome.
A person with dementia must be accompanied by a carer. Accessibility information can be found here.
Session times will be announced soon.
CARERS AND FAMILY MEMBERS
This special evening for dementia carers offers an exclusive opportunity to visit the Museum after hours. Join friends and colleagues and enjoy our exhibitions, refreshments and peer support.
The evenings for carers are free of charge but booking is required. The first Carer evening in May kicks off the Dementia Action Week in the Museum.

Bring along your family and share your stories with the next generation.
The museum is fully accessible, seating and refreshments are available in the cafe and garden.
