House of Memories 'On The Road'

When you can’t get to the museum, this museum comes to you. 

House of Memories On The Road is National Museums Liverpool's new touring 30 metre square mobile museum that opens up into an immersive cinema and activity space.

The first-ever immersive mobile museum experience in the UK, it has been designed to create memorable experiences for vulnerable and socially isolated people and people living with dementia. The vehicle meets people in their neighbourhoods - at settings such as care homes, community centres or even local shopping car parks. 

Using digital technology, House of Memories On The Road recreates the sights, sounds and smells of the past through a virtual 'front door'. Experiences will range from a trip on Liverpool’s Overhead Railway and a visit to a 1950s grocery store to a virtual day out at the seaside or a forest.  

Transported on a specially constructed vehicle, House of Memories On The Road drives into communities and is conveniently placed on a car park, taking up just three spaces for the mobile unit and one space for the van. 

Small groups of up to six people will enjoy a magical experience in a safe and intimate way, exploring memories of the past and bringing joy to the present. House of Memories On The Road will visit a single location each day, offering multiple sessions, to accommodate a larger number of visitors from each care setting.
