Background
This paper proposes a framework for studying the potential of museum-led interventions for supporting stroke rehabilitation goals.

Methods
The intervention was based on Kirvevold et al.’s model for interventions for post-stroke wellbeing. Mixed-methods data was collected to review benefits in a pilot study, including retrospective video observations for six sessions with four patients; interviews with patients, carers and facilitators; pre-post patient assessments; and facilitator diaries.

Results
Systematic analysis of videos showed high levels of concentration and engagement with museum objects, low levels of social interaction, and positive or neutral mood throughout. Thematic qualitative analysis suggested patients felt engaged in meaningful activities, which lifted negative mood, provided positive distraction from the ward, and increased self-esteem, including belief in patient abilities.

Conclusion
Further research is needed to fully establish the potential of museum-led interventions for stroke rehabilitation.
