Reptiles take over the museum!

Tuesday saw the first of our Easter holiday workshops with Wakefield Museums.

Reptilia Ossett provided families with the opportunity to get up close with some amazing reptiles.  From hissing cockroaches to a monitor lizard youngsters (and their grown-ups) had the chance to learn about and feed some of these more unusual creatures.

Comments from the workshop included “It was very educational, the workshop facilitators were friendly and patient. They were excellent at answering questions and knowledgeable about the reptiles.”  “Thank you – a lovely (even if a bit scary) activity” “I liked when they put the snake around my neck and when I held the millipede.”

Based in Ossett, Reptilia are “not just a pet shop” but are also an RSPCA approved reptile rescue centre. Along with selling reptiles and Aquatics they provide children with the chance to get a hands on experience, feed and handle a variety of animals. We approached Reptilia to come and provide a workshop at Wakefield Museum as a link to the animals on display in Waterton gallery in the museum.
