However the displays are changed periodically and less valuable items may be handled by school groups. The museum is open between 9 am and 4.30 pm weekdays. School groups must book in advance for a session - please contact the ducation Officer.

Interactive Resource- Annie's Box

This exciting new interactive experience is a collaboration between the Ure Museum and Museum in a box.

How do we know about what happened in the past? Historians and archaeologists use bits and pieces of information- whatever they can find- and use those bits and pieces to create a narrative. Become a historian and use the collection to piece together Annie's story.

So who was Annie? Open the box to find out!

Annie's box covers Key Stage 2 and 3 subjects, such as Geography, History, English and Citizenship.

If you would like to have Annie Ure's box in your classroom, please contact our Education Officer ure.education@reading.ac.uk
