We are having a great Ladybird Books Family Fun Day! here at the Museum - drop in and join us..

The MERL and Reading Museum are teaming up to offer a range of fun crafts and activities across both venues to celebrate the opening of our new exhibition Ladybird Books: ‘How it works’. Drop in and enjoy crafts for all the family, including ladybird hats, pompoms or balloons! Decorate both museums with ladybird garlands and enjoy story-time at 11am and 2pm in the exhibition. Then follow a fun trail from one museum to the other via the stunning Forbury Gardens and Abbey Ruins.
