Our mission is to engage a child's curiosity in science and nature.
The JMZ 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.
The Zoo is home to more than 50 species of animals-about 200 specimens in all-many of which are brought into classrooms as part of the Junior Museum & Zoo's science outreach program with local schools. Some of the animals include bobcats, raccoons, jungle bats, hedgehogs, ferrets, snakes, fresh water fish and invertebrates, birds, turtles and a giant tortoise!
We offer a menagerie of science programs for schools and community groups, as well as classes, summer camps and birthday parties for families.
