Our partnerships with businesses are vital to supporting our nationally recognised work with schools and the community in Reading.

These are some of the ways your business can work with us:

Sponsorship and corporate membership

We can create bespoke sponsorship packages to suit all levels of budget. A popular sponsorship package is based around major temporary exhibitions, providing businesses with targeted promotional opportunities. Please contact us for an informal discussion about how we can work with your business.

Packages can include joining our exclusive membership scheme to enjoy unique benefits while supporting our valued work with local schools and the community in Reading.  This scheme is administered by our friendly Hands-on Learning team, who lend over 1500 loan boxes to schools, hospitals and care homes in Reading.

Your corporate membership supports the learning team and the museum's partnership work in the local community. Our Patron is Sir John Madejski OBE DL. Membership benefits include the display of a museum object in a custom-made case and delivered to your premises. We can also discuss bespoke options including borrowing artworks and paintings for display in your office or venue.

Adopt an Object

This scheme is operated in association with the Friends of Reading Museum. When you adopt an object in the Museum your company’s name and logo will appear on its label for the next year. More details are available from the Adopt an Object page.
