Moments and Memories Outreach

The Museum of Oxford’s Moments and Memories Outreach Project is a popular scheme delivering sessions to groups of older people in Oxford city.

We bring a collection of museum objects to sessions to stimulate discussions,  encouraging participants to share thoughts, stories or moments.  

The sessions last for approximately 1 hour and groups can chose from a range of themes. There is a charge £20 for each session.
