The Northern Ireland War Memorial is a museum in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter which explores the story of the Home Front in Northern Ireland during the Second World War.
The museum offers informative and engaging outreach workshops that bring objects and photographs from the museum collection to community groups. Workshops can be comprised of the following activities: (please choose one when booking)
Reminiscence can improve a person’s emotional well-being. In our Reminiscence workshops we use objects and photographs from the museum collection to stimulate conversation about the past.
Using objects from the museum collection for inspiration, our craft sessions focus on enjoying the activity, not on making a perfect finished piece. The workshops are simple, safe and sensory.
Wartime sing-along sessions – Sing For Victory
Participatory activities such as singing can be enjoyable and engaging for groups. We offer a singing and reminiscence workshop which focuses on songs from the 1940s.
Why not borrow a reminiscence loan box?
Our loan boxes contain objects and photographs which stimulate conversation and curiosity. Individuals, activity therapists and community group leaders can borrow a reminiscence loan box from the museum for a period of two weeks, free of charge. We also provide guidance notes to enable you to lead an engaging reminiscence session.
Outreach workshops last one hour and are FREE of cost.
