Reminiscence triggers spontaneous conversations between people which can increase selfesteem, improve people’s mood, assist in the forming of friendships and social growth and allow people to see things from another’s points of view.

Petersfield Museum’s reminiscence service provides objects, photographs, sounds and smells all relevant to Petersfield and the surrounding area. The resources provided are multi-sensory to encourage all ages and abilities to take part. It is suitable for use in any location where a group of people can gather such as a day centre or care home. The resources can be borrowed as a Time Travelling Trunk (loan box), or a session can be led by the museums Learning and Community Engagement team.
