Your Memory Box is a project that the whole family can get involved in, providing a permanent reminder in the years to come of 2020's lockdown.

A memory box is a ‘time capsule’ that connects an individual or a family with the past through the items contained within the box.

Memory boxes can be used in a range of ways and anyone can make one using almost any sized box or container (or even a scrapbook).  They are simple to make and can be a great way for individuals or a family to reminisce over this particular time in history.

Anything can be stored in memory box – photographs, letters, objects, a diary, a treasure map. Anything that people feel will prompt a memory of this time.  Here are some ideas of what you could put in your Memory Box. 

Swindon Museum and Art Gallery staff have come up with a few ideas to get people started and the team are encouraging individuals to take a picture of their memory box or scrapbook and send them in to: swindonmag@swindon.gov.uk or share on the museum and art gallery’s social media pages - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The team look forward to seeing your memories!
