Statement of Purpose

It is the goal of the Junior Museum & Zoo to provide process oriented experiences that allow young people to develop good observational skills, to learn to ask provocative questions and to understand that they have the capacity within themselves to take action based on their questions and observations.

Highlights & Collections

"Construction Sight" is opening on January 17. This exhibit will enable children to experience different aspects of what goes into the construction of a building. Visitors will be able to sample a wide variety of activities from making their own buildin buio handling "real" construction materials.

Construction Sight is a child friendly environment that will excite and motivate learning through a series of activity and exhibit areas which will be encouraging to both children and adults.

Located within our Museum is "PlaySpot", an interactive play environment for children under five and their care-givers. "PlaySpot" provides developmentally appropriate tools for young children in the context of the exhibit hall.
