Reminiscence in open air museums - Results from the Erasmus+ project Active Ageing and Heritage in Adult Learning

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Bruce DavenportORCiD, Professor Areti Galani, Professor Rhiannon MasonORCiD



Open air museums provide unique opportunities to work with reminiscence for people with dementia. By providing a whole setting of an outdoor area, a house or a flat fully equipped with furniture and objects that can be used, all senses are activated. This book is based on the findings from the EU-funded project Active ageing and Heritage in Adult learning where five open air museums and three universities worked together to develop and evaluate reminiscence activities for people with dementia. There are also useful guidelines for other cultural heritage organisations wishing to work with reminiscence activities, as well as suggested course curriculums for providing learning opportunities for relatives or professional carers.
