Sir John Madejski Gallery

This stunningly refurbished Victorian art gallery houses changing exhibitions of art works and artefacts, sometimes from the Museum's collection and sometimes on loan. Find out about current and upcoming exhibitions.

Some of our exhibitions focus on a particular artist or group of artists, others take a broad theme as a base for a multidisciplinary show highlighting parts of our collections that would otherwise be rarely seen. Discover more about our art collection.

A big thank you for a really enjoyable experience at Reading Museum yesterday. I thought the exhibition was really good, I was amazed at the standard of the work and found the whole exhibition very thought provoking.
