The Junior Museum & Zoo is a place where children and their caregivers come to explore, discover, create and play. Through hands-on science exhibits and a diverse community of live animals, your child's natural scientist will be nurtured.


Junior Museum & Zoo Fall Programming

Registration has begun for our fall programming, which will be offered for children in 1st through 5th grades. We are offering both outdoor and virtual programming this fall.

Junior Museum Science Outdoors

Join Junior Museum environmental educators completely outdoors, after school, in our beautiful open spaces!  Program sites include Arastradero Preserve, Foothills Park and the Baylands Preserve. With each program, your child will learn about the unique plants, animals and ecology of each place while enjoying all of the beauty and adventure these amazing wild spaces have to offer.  Social distancing, masks, and other health and safety protocols will be maintained.

Junior Museum Virtual Zoo

Do you love animals? Get a virtual close up view of our animals and their lives at our zoo, from our littlest bugs to our playful ferrets! Watch them eat, play, and explore all while we learn about what it takes to be a zookeeper!
