You are warmly welcome to join our Living Brands creative reminiscing sessions, where our experienced guides bring the Museum displays to life with the help of products, sounds, and scents from the past. Sessions at the Museum are open for everyone, but specially designed for people living with dementia. Our outreach team is also available to lead reminiscing sessions for care homes and community groups in London.
Carers & Families
Are you a part of a memory café, or an informal group of carers? Walk down memory lane and discover your favourite childhood toys and games, or the breakfast cereals and laundry powders from your family home. If your group cannot come to the Museum, our outreach team may be able to visit your group, and deliver an educational and entertaining talk about the history of brands, and how the Museum of Brands came about.
Do you work with people living with dementia, whether in a care home, or a community group setting? Learn how to lead Brand Memory sessions using multi-sensory household items inspired by the Museum of Brands. All attendees receive a kit of replica soaps, soup tins, and other household items from different eras, and a booklet of activities designed to be used with a person with dementia.
