Blitzed: Liverpool lives, Liverpool memories
Atrium, 1 – 4pm
Join us to share memories and talk about the devastating effects of the Liverpool Blitz on our city, to tie in with our exhibition Blitzed: Liverpool lives.
This memory sharing event will include handling items, old photographs, visual minutes, and the opportunity to share memories with a member of our friendly education team. Help us find out more about this important time in our city’s history.
Remember When…? Lost Buildings
Do you remember the old Customs House? What about the original Cavern Club? Join our friendly demonstrator for this relaxed reminiscence session all about the lost buildings of Liverpool. Drop in and chat about the old buildings, streets, shops, and venues that have vanished from our changing city!
2pm and 3.30pm
Memory walks are dementia-friendly guided visits in the Museum of Liverpool, for older people to explore Liverpool’s past, and for people to share their memories and stories of life in Liverpool. Memory walks are free and last about one hour.
Remember When…? Transport
Do you remember when the Mersey was full of ships? What about the green buses? Did you travel on the Overhead Railway? Join our friendly demonstrator for this relaxed reminiscence session all about transport in the city. Drop in and chat about the trams, buses, cars, and trains that kept us on the move!
