The building alone is amazing and the studios and artwork were very interesting. I loved the history and informative atmosphere. A fun, free outing for the whole family.

This is an amazing gem hidden in downtown Reading. You will find everything from art galleries, to glass blowing classes and dance studios. There is an amazing little gift shop where you can surely find something for that hard to buy for person.

We stopped in at the Goggleworks not knowing what to expect. A staff member behind a counter explained to us where things were in the facility and what we could do. We visited two galleries in the space which were quite interesting and, generally speaking, family friendly. We ate lunch at the on-site café. The café was reasonably priced and... More

This is a place where you can go and see local artist work of art. You can also take classes in a variety of things like glass blowing, or ceramic. You can also enjoy movies there.

I come here for both exhiibiion shows and second Sundays. Goggle Works is very interesting with a wide array of artists, styles, and work. There is also a theater, a cafe, and free parking. Well worth your time.

The Googleworks is an amazing place to fulfill an artistic desire. Pottery, jewelry making, cooking, water color painting, oil painting, ceramics, drawing... Oh, and woodworking... If you can imagine it, the Googleworks probably has a local artisan who teaches it. So, expand your horizons!
