The memory suitcase is a free loan service which is available from Museum of Liverpool for up to two weeks at a time.

We recommend attending House of Memories dementia awareness training to give you the skills to run a reminiscence session. Our current set of training days continues until March 2014.
Guided visits to the Museum of Liverpool specially for older local people
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. 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. They are currently available on weekdays and must be booked in advance. Sessions last approximately one hour and can accommodate up to 25 people.
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.
To book, or for further enquiries, please email the communities team using this contact form or phone 0151 478 4977.
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. Our current set of training days continues until March 2014.
