All of the galleries at Reading Museum will be accessible, however most of our interactives have been removed for your safety.

Our regular family events, such as Tales for Tots will not be running.

For families we have created a new children's trail and bingo trail to help you navigate our new one way route.

For all of the latest information and changes please see our Welcome Back pages. 


We welcome all families here at Reading Museum and want to make sure you enjoy your visit!

Our family-friendly galleries are accessible to all. Help your child to explore the Museum using our free trails, worksheets, picture bingo and handling bags. Enjoy drawing and colouring in as you head around the galleries or pick up a book in the Silchester Annexe.

During the school holidays we have free activity cart and run a programme of fun craft activities aimed at different age groups. Check our What’s On pages for full listings.

Don’t forget our Tales for Tots, every Wednesday 10.30am – 11.30am.


I enjoy all the art and craft and cooking activities that are put on in the school holidays. We come every time and both my 5 year old and 9 year old love it.
