The Reading Public Museum is pleased to offer an exciting variety of programming for groups of all ages, sizes, and abilities. Guests have the opportunity to see objects, ask questions, and actively engage in their learning.  All of our learner-driven visits take and exciting multi-disciplinary approach, linking concepts in art, culture, science, and history. We can help tailor a visit specific for your group based on any of our special exhibits, permanent collections, Planetarium, or Arboretum.
