We are committed to broadening access to all, enabling learning opportunities whatever your age or stage of life. We can offer you guided tours, talks, workshops, family friendly events and educational sessions at our sites and at your community venues.
Working with you in your community groups we provide sessions which draw from our collections and inspire learning and engagement in an informal setting. We can tailor sessions to suit the needs of your group; reminiscence sessions, talks, workshops and even theatrical participation. We try to make sessions fun, engaging and stimulating. We can also help you to develop your own sessions at our sites.
Reminiscence Loan Boxes
Manx National Heritage offer a memory box loan service for care homes, day centres or community groups to enable self-led reminiscence sessions. The boxes contain museum objects and photographs from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s to stimulate conversation and promote discussion. Please ask about our guidance training for help in developing reminiscence groups.
