Have you ever played Monopoly? More specifically, ever landed on the Reading Railroad? This real-life railroad holds a strong piece of Reading’s industrial legacy, in addition to a robust history, rich with culture and diversity.

Here, you can engage with the past around you in some unexpected places. You might take a train through time as you board the Colebrookdale Railroad. Or come face-to-face with an Egyptian mummy when you walk through the Reading Public Museum, which has delighted visitors for over a century.

More of an outdoor explorer? Check out one of PA’s greatest natural wonders, Crystal Cave, and spelunk your way through time! Or, check out our World War II Weekend at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum, which brings thousands of history + aviation fans to our regional airport.

Greater Reading’s unsurpassed history per mile is waiting to be explored. Take a self-guided tour through a historic homestead, or experience the Reading Symphony Orchestra in a historic theater. From family-friendly to the hottest musical, community theater is at its best at Genesius Theater, entertained by the region’s most talented, local actors.
