Take a gentle stroll through Liverpool's past. Do you remember when the river Mersey was full of ships? Shops like Blacklers? Days out at New Brighton? Visiting Colomendy?

If so, you may enjoy our memory walk around the Museum of Liverpool. You'll see some objects and images that you might just remember, share memories and stories and find out how Liverpool's history is being told today.

Memory walks are free. Sessions last approximately one hour and can accommodate up to 25 people. Find out when the next memory walk will be in the Museum of Liverpool's What's on section.

You can also book memory walks for groups. To book a memory walk for your group, or for further enquiries, please email us using this contact form or phone 0151 478 4242.

The Museum of Liverpool is fully accessible and support is available on this tour for people with disabilities. Please state any specific needs when booking.

You can also find out how to lead your own memory walks around the Museum of Liverpool on our House of Memories dementia awareness training workshops. Keep an eye on this page or sign up for our bi-monthly email newsletter for further information.
