Kirkleatham Museum and Owl Centre

The other day I went to Kirkleatham Museum with my family. It was so beautiful and I photos that were so cute that I had to share them with you. This is a picture of the outside of the museum. 

So beautiful! 

I absolutely loved the look of the museum!

This is a picture of the beautiful water fountain outside the museum, it was to beautiful not to take a picture. People throw money in this water fountain, to make a wish. I bet the water coming over the sides of the water fountain would be so cooling on a summers day, wasn't so nice when we went as it was freezing.

When we arrived, we took the kids into the new wooden park that has just been opened in the beginning of may. 


Great park, the kids and adults had a lot of fun. This park had really interesting and original things for the kids to play on including this wooden log pictured below. 


After we had been in the park, we went and looked around the museum. it's free to enter, and great to look around.

To keep the children entertained while looking round the museum, they were given a quiz where you had to find the pictures on the teddy bears and mark off the names on the list you were given. Also, about half way around the museum there was a room where you could do colouring pictures and wordsearches. 

Near the end they had these hats that you could try on. Here is Hayden with the two different hats you could try. 


Next is Abby and Ashleigh try the hats on. 


 And finally Lucy and Me. 


After we had been to the Museum, near here is the Kirkleatham owl centre. It is £3.50 for adults, £2.20 for children, or you could get a family ticket which included 2 adults and up to 3 children for £9.95. Also children under 4 are free. 


You could pay for food to feed the owls and animals at the centre. Here is Abby feeding the chickens while one of the workers hold the chicken. 


Lucy took and interest in the meerkats, and one in particular took a liking to her. It kept coming up to the glass and looking at her. 

In the owl centre there was this beautiful tree that I just had to take a picture of it looked so good. 

I was in love with this little fox at the owl centre, I wanted to take him home he was so cute. There was three foxes, but the other two were asleep at the back of the cage.

At the Owl Centre there was a bird display on at 2:30, Meerkat Feeding at 3:00 and Animal Encounters at 3:30. While at animal encounters, Hayden held this snake and a tarantula. I didn't get a picture of the tarantula as i'm terrified of them. They also had tortoises which i'm also afraid of, so basically it was my worst nightmare. Instead I watched the fox some more, including them getting fed. We had an great day at Kirkleatham Museum and Owl Centre, will definitely so back in the summer. 
Thanks for Reading!
