Family Adventure – The Junior Museum & Zoo in Palo Alto

We were looking for a kid friendly place last weekend to take our toddler to that would be a fun out door/indoor learning adventure plus it was such a beautiful sunny day outside that we wanted to take advantage. I was looking online and I found this place that combined both elements The Junior Museum and Zoo in Palo Alto. It shines as a community gem and strives to engage a child’s curiosity in science and nature. Admission is Free but donations are more than welcomed to help the Museum continue to provide this adventure for the community.

We went on a Sunny Sunday around 2:30pm and it was pretty packed so if you want to go with a smaller crowd I would suggest going during the week in the morning time.

They also have a Large playground in the back of the Museum that you can take the kids to for snack or lunch time and play.
