This article discusses the value of museums in dementia care practice. The methods used are as follows: (1) quantitative profiling of participants’ care responsibilities; (2) standardised measures of subjective well-being and care burden; (3) participant observation; and (4) qualitative feedback. The results from the data show: (1) increased dementia awareness; (2) improved subjective well-being; (3) increased engagement with museums, and (4) improved capacity for critical, reflective and creative care practice. The conclusion of the article is that the research contributes to scholarly understanding of care practice, training and development by exploring the relationship between cultural intermediation, emotions and affect, and their value in health and social care.
