  • It is a very nice place to come and learn. There is always something for everyone. They have hands-on kids exibits, to any kind of painting you can think of! This is a small spot you might want to enjoy .It is not worth a 2 hour drive to come and see,but if you are close by you should consider it .
  • This is an amazing museum! It has such a great variety of items and wonderful displays! They also bring in fun touring displays! Outside the museum has a great walking trail filled with beautiful flowers!
  • Great cultural treasure. Reading museum is one of the must visit places if you are visiting Berks county. From the outdoor park with gardens and free standing art work to the inside exhibits, there's something for almost everyone. They have rotating children's exhibits, an Egyptian mummy, natural history, and various period pieces. Be sure to check the events too. Its not a big museum so you can visit and not spend all day there.
  • Beautiful art, very clean space, perfect place for photography, walking or just observing beautiful work. Landscaping has been on point every time I have been here.
  • Went for a very cool Ninja Turtles exhibit & will be back. Has a great planetarium.
