We've chosen a number of topics as an introduction to the collections at Reading Museum. You can browse these pages to discover fascinating facts about Reading's history and Reading Museum's collections.

Each topic page is linked to related records. These can all be from one specific part of the collections, such as Pioneering Photographers. Or they can be drawn from more than one subject area, like Reading Abbey - this topic is linked to Art records (prints and paintings), History records (photographs) and Archaeology records (associated objects). So if you're not sure what to look for, the Topics are a good place to start exploring! We hope you enjoy them.
