Museum on Wheels is our new hands-on outreach programme aiming to visit venues throughout Reading for a variety of festivals and community events.
We want to make people proud of the significant history of Reading by spreading the word about our exciting exhibitions, projects and collections, and opportunities to get involved.
Abbey on Wheels in 2018
Last year Abbey on Wheels popped up across Reading with changing activities such as:
New Museum on Wheels Events in 2019
This year our programme continues with Museum on Wheels exploring the varied and fantastic history of Reading from the first Anglo-Saxon settlement, through our impressive medieval past with the building of Reading Abbey to the Industrial Revolution and even the present day.
Are you holding a community event in 2019?
Do you know of an event or venue where we can spread the word about Reading Abbey and Museum? This is a community project so we would love to hear your suggestions! Email the Learning Team to discuss your idea further.
Talks and Outreach Visits
We also offer talks, handling presentations and outreach visits during museum open hours, Monday - Saturday 10am-4pm.
We charge for these events to cover the cost of staff, resources and transport.
Please email the Learning Team for more information.
We'd like to thank the Earley Charity who support our Museum on Wheels project.
