Good news! From Monday 12th April, the Reading Museum shop will reopen as the first step of the museum's reopening (in line with the latest Government guidelines). We hope to welcome back visitors to the museum galleries from the 18th May. Find out more on our COVID-19 updates blog.

Reading Museum is based in the Victorian Town Hall right in the centre of town. Discover our Huntley & Palmers biscuit tin collection, archaeology from Roman Silchester and Reading Abbey, our famous Victorian copy of the Bayeux Tapestry, the natural history of Reading, and much more! While a short walk away through the Abbey Quarter is the Riverside Museum at Blake's Lock. Reading is on the Great West Way touring route, so is an ideal base to explore all of its amazing attractions whether you’re travelling by bus, bike, car or train.
