Here’s how to discover all memory locations in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Once you receive the Main Quest “Seek Out Impa,” you will journey to Kakariko Village where Link will be told that 12 pictures in the Sheikah Slate’s Album show Zelda’s memories from 100 years ago.
In the next Main Quest, “Locked Mementos,” Link will be challenged to visit the spots shown in the images that Zelda has left behind to recall his own memories from that era.
It will be more fun for you to hunt out these locations yourself, but, for those needing pointers as to where they are we have listed them below.

She will reveal that there is one final memory to recover, activating the Main Quest “Captured Memories.” This last memory is an important one, not only as Link will recover all associated memories from his days with Princess Zelda, but that it will place the most context around the game’s events.
It is located near to Kakariko Village, meaning that you will not have to go far to find it. It can be found near Fort Hateno on Blatchery Plain, in the middle of Ash Swamp.
Captured Memory #18: The Master Sword
The Captured Memory “The Master Sword” is unlocked once players successfully retrieve the Master Sword of Resurrection in Korok Forest.
