The Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo is a great San Francisco Bay Area destination for children. Located in Palo Alto, the museum offers fun and education exhibits targeted towards its young visitors.

The exhibits at the museum do change. The current one is focused on bugs, which showcases various insects.

Outside, you can see the various live animals in their collection. The large pond is home to Roxy, an embden goose, as well as assorted ducks, turtles and rabbits.

The bobcats appear more cute than menacing.

If you are lucky, you’ll see Sequoia the bald eagle or Boeing the red-tailed hawk. They were with their trainers on the day I visited. Not sure where these majestic birds hang out regularly.
