Ancient Greeks produced painted pottery over 2,500 years ago. They were the leaders in developing new decorative techniques and the artists depicted fashions, stories and gods. The images on the pottery show us that everyday Greek life was not so very different from our own.

Reading Museum has a stunning collection of Greek pots, including a number from the Museum’s founding Bland Collection. Many of them are on loan to the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology at Reading University.

Reading Museum & Town Hall is well known for its landmark building in the centre of Reading and is part of Reading Borough Council’s cultural services. The Museum has Full Accreditation status from Arts Council England.
