Experience a unique educator-led discussion and tour. A Museum educator engages people with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s or a related disorder and an accompanying family member or friend in discussions about the artwork to stimulate visual and verbal abilities and to spark memory. Museum admission and tours are free for participants.

Memories at the Museums, presented by the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, alternates between four co-sponsoring museums that are all located in central Balboa Park. The participating museums are: Museum of Photographic Arts, Mingei International Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, and the Timken Museum of Art. Each monthly tour is limited to 8 pairs (16 participants total). Pre-registration is required. Please call Lisa Snyder, LCSW at the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at(858) 822-4800 to register for a tour.
