Memory Lane
The Memory Lane reminiscence session is a regular group that meet at the Museum of Oxford to encourage older people to attend the Museum and share reminiscences around a theme. Some sessions are held at local heritage sites to tie in with a particular topic. The project aims to engage older audiences in Museum activities and use the material collected to inform Museum exhibitions and projects. The project began in 2010 and is now an established part of the Museums programme.

Two well attended reminiscence events took place, each looking at different aspects of Oxford’s food history. The second session took place at Taste of the Tropics pop up Caribbean Café in East Oxford. This gave participants the opportunity to try Caribbean cuisine and to experience Caribbean culture. For some this was a new experience.

To mark the Morris Motors Centenary (100 years of car making in Oxford) the  Reminiscence Officer at the Museum of Oxford teamed up with the Learning and Access Manager from Hands On Oxfordshire’s Heritage (part of Oxfordshire’s County Museum Service) to deliver a series of 7 Morris Motors themed reminiscence events across Oxford and Oxfordshire. The location of each event had a link to the car industry.
