Explore our campus, learn more about our teaching studios, and see our artists in action. Group tours are great for schools and summer camps, corporate, and nonprofit organizations. A guide will tour your group through our gallery spaces to view our current exhibitions, working artist studios, and teaching studios. Learn more about Reading’s industrial past and our building’s history as the first factory in the United States to manufacture optical lenses.
Capacity: 50 per tour; multiple tours can be scheduled at the same time. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours and includes a demonstration in our Hot Glass Studio.
Note: Free guided tours are offered on a weekly basis. Check our calendar of events for our next scheduled tour.
