Reading Museum & Town Hall is well known for its landmark building in the centre of Reading and is part of Reading Borough Council's cultural services. The Museum has Full Accreditation status from Arts Council England.

Reading Museum has been providing award-winning opportunities for learning, inspiration and enjoyment since 1883 and provides hands-on learning services with a national reputation for innovation and excellence. The Museum & Town Hall’s period rooms and galleries provide a thriving venue for conferences, exhibitions and weddings. The Concert Hall is an important venue for classical music and comedy events.

The Riverside Museum at Blake’s Lock tells the history of Reading’s rivers and hosts community art exhibitions in the summer.

Our service vision is to be a leading cultural hub for Reading and the Thames Valley by:

  • Maintaining and growing our nationally and internationally admired collections
  • Optimising community engagement with our facilities and services
  • Building on our reputation for creative outreach and learning
  • Operating innovatively and cost-effectively for a sustainable future
