Latest News: The Friends of Reading Museum are starting a Young Friends group - there will be a free introductory meeting on Saturday 25th November at 10am in the Victorian Gallery. Children aged between 8 and 12 are very welcome to attend (with their parents or guardians). If you would like to attend please email Samuel to book a place 

The Friends exist to create a greater awareness of Reading Museum, and to promote the importance of the Museum’s collections and their presentation to the community.

We raise funds for the purchase of artworks and artefacts and support activities which would not otherwise be possible.
