‘Meet me at the Museum’ is a series of free events for older people to take a nostalgic look back with a different theme each month. Sit back and share your memories with our friendly visitor hosts, and relax with a tea or coffee among friends.

Everyone is welcome. This event is dementia friendly. Come on your own and make new friends or bring a pal.

Monthly themes

  • January’s theme is hobbies and interests. Tell us about your interests and have a go at some simple, fun activities and feel inspired.
  • February’s theme is transport through the ages and explores the ways we travel. This event is inspired by the new Liverpool on wheels: from horses to horsepower exhibition, opening on 14 February at the Museum of Liverpool, which offers a unique insight into the fabulous array of vehicles built in and around Liverpool.
  • March’s theme is shops, past and present. Share which shops were your favourites from the big department stores - Henderson’s, Lewis’s, and George Henry Lee to Kwik Save and Somerfield - as we ask, where do we buy things today?
  • April’s theme is art. Art enriches our lives. Explore works you may be familiar and how they make you feel, including famous works by artists and different forms of art. Art is everywhere, let’s enjoy it together.
  • May’s theme is community. Community is the lifeblood of our country. In the past, we celebrated together with street parties and parades. Did you ever attend a street party or parade or help to organize one? Let’s talk about how events were celebrated in the past.
  • June’s theme is inspired by nature and seasons, and explores what birds, animals, plants and trees you may be familiar with during the four seasons.
