Royal Mint Museum reminiscence boxes

THE ROYAL MINT MUSEUM REMINISCENCE PROJECT RECIEVES TECHNOLOGY DONATION TO INCREASE ACCESSIBILITY

  • The Royal Mint Museum is running an interactive experience for care home residents to aid reminiscence

  • The ‘Museum in a Box’ scheme stimulates memory recall and encourages new and uplifting conversations among residents

  • 50 new Toughbooks donated by Panasonic further enhance the offering by providing the opportunity to add video and music

The Royal Mint Museum is helping care homes across the UK to stimulate conversation and fun among residents with their ‘Museum in a Box’ project.


The interactive sessions are centred around a free-to-loan electronic box which includes objects relating decimalisation.



Each object is fitted with a special micro-chip which, when placed on the box, play audio clips to foster memories and conversations with others about times gone by.

Project Coordinator Bethan James, from the Royal Mint Museum says: “The reminiscence sessions are a fun and stimulating activity, giving care home residents the opportunity to talk about their memories of times gone by. Thanks to Panasonic Business, we can now add another dimension to the project helping more people to be able to engage with the objects and the session. We’re very grateful to Panasonic for their support with this project. Their generosity has ensured that as many more positive experiences continue to be enjoyed.”


Kevin Jones, Director of Operations at Panasonic, added: “What an amazing initiative to be involved with! The Panasonic team are delighted to be able to donate Toughbooks to support these sessions and have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the project.”

Each care home will receive a box for two weeks, and they are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between uses.
