About

The Cole Museum of Zoology is owned and managed by the University of Reading.  It was established by Professor Francis Cole in 1906 when the University was known as University College Reading. The Cole Museum of Zoology represents a snapshot of animal diversity in the early 20th century and has always been used to teach zoology and comparative anatomy. The Museum is home to thousands of specimens of great zoological significance, including taxidermy, skeletons, histological preparations, fluid-preserved dissections, fossil material, casts, and some superb models of developmental stages and extinct animals. 

Now in its brand new home in the Health and Life Sciences building, it is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, unless the University is closed.
