Memory Boxes

Amersham Museum has available a reminiscence service which we have created for older members of the community. This includes a collection of Memory Boxes which contain various objects, (including sensory objects  for scent, sound and touch) photos and documents that help to promote discussion, sharing memories and laughter in a friendly environment. 

Themes include:

· A Night Out in the 1950s

· The 1960s

· Working Life

· Shopping

· Toys

The Memory boxes are a valuable resource for Care Homes, Independent Community Groups, Sheltered Housing Groups and can either be delivered by a member of the Museum or used independently.

We have found that the Memory Boxes are interactive and fun and help trigger memories and reminiscence generating much discussion and giving a lot of pleasure.

For more information about this service please contact the Museum: or 01494 723700
