Educational visits to the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology

Museum will be closed for part of the Easter holiday  (13th-15th & 18th April also closed weekends) not open on Mondays or Fridays.

The Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology, owned by the University of Reading and an integral part of the Department of Classics, is recognised as the fourth largest collection of Greek ceramics in Britain. 

The collection primarily consists of material from the Greek and Greco-Roman civilisations of the Mediterranean, most notably Greek and Etruscan ceramics and terracottas. Other artifacts include prehistoric pottery, as well as metal and stone artifacts of Greek and Roman date. There is also an important collection of Egyptian antiquities, ranging from the Pre-dynastic to the Roman period.

We are open to the general public and provide taught sessions for schools on the Ancient Egyptians and the Ancient Greeks.
