Though Reading Museum is currently closed due to the coronavirus, we know how important it is for people to be able to keep accessing and enjoying art, culture and history.

So, we’re delighted to be able to welcome you this virtual journey through our ongoing exhibition: ‘ANIMAL: World Art Journeys’.

‘ANIMAL’ brings together creatures both recognisable and imagined, with a breadth of forms, styles, colours, shapes and sizes that matches the very variety of the animal kingdom itself.

Many of the objects are part of the Reading Museum collection, while others are on loan from the Museum of English Rural Life and some have been kindly lent to us by the people of Reading.

Enjoy!
