The Hunt Museum in Limerick offers a programme for people living with early onset dementia and their family/carers. The whole idea is to spark reminiscences and conversation. A responsive and welcoming space is provided for people with dementia to participate in facilitated discussions and become active participants in the life of the museum.

Come and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the Hunt Café. Then look at some of the objects in the Hunt Collection and other objects from times gone by.

The programme runs at the Hunt Museum on the following dates in 2020:
