Virtual Programming

To keep our community engaged during this unprecedented time, we have developed some online programming to keep our visitors connected to the Junior Museum & Zoo!


The Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo Youtube channel - Find out more about our animals during shelter-in-place, and explore fun science experiments at home with our education staff!


Zoo Time with Mikey & Molly - Join JMZ teachers Mikey and Molly as they care for and play with the animals of the Junior Museum & Zoo. Each week, you will meet a different animal, or group of animals, that lives at the Zoo and learn about the many different ways we keep them happy and healthy. You’ll get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at life at the Zoo during shelter-in-place.


Shelter with Science - Join JMZ Teachers Mikey and Molly, each Monday at 11 a.m. for adventures in earth science, physics, and biology. Through Zoom Webinar, you’ll be transported to the Junior Museum classroom where you’ll experience captivating experiments and science demonstrations, get to ask questions of the instructors, and learn about ways you can continuing exploring the topic on your own.


Be sure to check back often, as we'll continue to add new content and activities.
