My 2nd grader and I were just there 2 days ago. Thanks for giving us better insights about the rock star animals. Kudos to the staff!

Growing up here 50yrs ago some of my favorite times were spent at the Jr Museum. It is where I first learned about the environment, our place in it, and our responsibilities to it. And it was so much fun! A few years ago I finally had the throw away a wonderful model of an Oriole I won at the Jr Museum when its wings fell off; that's how good the memories were! I'm so glad to see that it continues it's fine work and has wonderful plans for the future. This is how the world changes for the better. Bravo!

"Ninety-nine percent of the people who come through here you love, but you remember those 1 percent who don't treat the animals with respect above all else," he said. "You have to be professional about it, as much as you want to run over there and scream at them," he said. "Sometimes you need to talk to the parent just as much as the child."
I actually think screaming would not be out of order! Kudos to the wonderful, patient, staff.
