About your tour at The Museum

Have a guide meet you to take you through pre-selected galleries per your group’s request, or let us show you The Museum’s highlights to get an overview our diverse collections! 

Self-guided visits can also be arranged. Generally these visits are acceptable for groups of no more than 30 visitors. Self-guided tours must take place during regular Museum hours. To be eligible for the group rate, self-guided visits must be pre-arranged.

For grades k-8 we ask that you bring one adult for every 10 students. For grades 9-12 we ask that you bring one adult for every 20 students. All chaperones must stay with their group while rotating through The Museum galleries. Behavior of your group while at The Museum is the responsibility of your group chaperones.

Need help with funding to The Museum? Check out our Feed Their Imagination grant program.

Grant assistance is available through The Reading Public Museum's Feed Their Imagination program. Thanks to our generous donors, we are proud to be able to offer funds to help students of all ages and backgrounds come to The Museum.  With many schools having to eliminate field trips and other special programs due to budget cuts, this grant opportunity is more important than ever. Grants are available for all public, private, and parochial schools during designated times of the year. Opportunities for other groups are possible as well.  Contact us to apply for a Feed Their Imagination grant.
