You do not have to be a biologist to find a zoological Museum fascinating. You will certainly second this opinion when you step into the famous Cole Museum of Zoology; a University Museum that is designed to intrigue both the biologist and the layman in the fascinating Animal World. The Cole Museum of Zoology was inspired by pure passion. The University of Reading Professor of Zoology, Francis J. Cole was a man dedicated to his work. His genuine love for his subject material opened new doors to discovery and lead to the establishment of this Zoology Museum in the early 20th century. The Museum since then has been a fantastic exhibition of some of the most unique findings in the zoological world.
When the Museum was first established it was more commonly visited by the science students from The University of Reading and other neighbouring Colleges. It dint take long for word of its popularity to reach the general public who made the Cole Museum of Zoology the next big destination in London. The Museum contains around 4000 specimens of which 400 are displayed at one time. Some of the must not miss exhibits are the complete skeleton structures of a Male Indian Elephant, a five meter Reticulated Python, a pair of Giant Spider Crabs, a false Killer Whale and a fossil of the largest spider to have ever lived. In the year 2004, the Museum underwent extensive renovation and now it is bigger and better than ever before. The Museum for a long time was actually housed in the University premises on the London Road but it is now located at Whiteknights and can be easily accessed through tram.
