Young visitors to Bradford Industrial Museum will get to handle small animals and reptiles at two special sessions over the summer holiday.
There is an animal theme at the Bradford Council-owned Eccleshill Museum over the summer season with two exhibitions – ‘Beastly Machines’, animatronic animal inspired sculptures by artist Johnny White and ‘Animal Attraction’ which uses items from Bradford Museums and Galleries collections to look at our relationship with animals in the past.
The Zoolab sessions complement these exhibitions and take place in the Animal Attraction gallery space. Visitors will get the chance to encounter a range of reptiles, insects and small mammals, including hedgehogs and frogs.
Coun Sarah Ferriby, Executive Member for Environment, Sport and Culture, said: “This event looks like it will be fun for all the family, literally bringing the themes of the two exhibitions to life.”
The sessions will be on Wednesday 27 July and Wednesday 3 August, both running from 11am-1.30pm.
This event is free, but families are advised to book, as space will be limited.
Prams and pushchairs can be left at reception and the museum is a breast-feeding friendly site.
To book a place, ring the museum’s reception desk on 01274 435900. More information can be found on the website – www.bradfordmuseums.org
