On the first Wednesday of each month, a group of special visitors gathers in one of three participating Cincinnati museums for a tour designed expressly for them. The group includes people whose memories are fragile in the extreme and their guests, the family members or others who accompany them. Memories in the Museum is a new program developed in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati (AAGC), the Cincinnati Art Museum (CAM), Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) and Taft Museum of Art. 

The program began officially in September at the Cincinnati Art Museum, continued in October at the Taft Museum and will have its first gathering at the Contemporary Arts Center from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Wednesday, Nov. 6. “Identity and the Photographic Image” is the theme for the CAC event and will give participants the opportunity to take part in the program by learning photo transfer techniques.

Memories in the Museum takes place the first Wednesday of every month. The series is free but reservations are required. Call 800-272-3900 to sign up for November’s event.
