Our Country Lives programme

Our Country Lives logoThanks to a recent £1.8m Heritage Lottery Fund grant, the Museum of English Rural Life is embarking on a redevelopment project which will transform the Museum and the way a new generation engages with rural heritage.

Further details are available at www.reading.ac.uk/merl/ourcountrylives

To allow work to take place, the Museum closed in the Autumn of 2014 and will reopen mid-2016. The Museum will be holding a series of events related to the project throughout the closure period to keep visitors involved and up to date.
