The Reptile Zoo is home to more than 100 exotic species of reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids. Some were rescued and brought here, some were born here, and others hitchhiked here after reading about the zoo's excellent conditions. The zoo invites you to explore and learn about all its many creatures, whether through interactive displays or live presentations. Some hands-on opportunities at the zoo may include wearing an eight-foot Burmese python around your arm or feeding hungry beasts in the hands-on feeding zone. During a visit, you might also meet a celebrity in Frank, a 65-pound lizard better known as Mr. Kipling on The Disney Channel's Jessie.

Orange County Museum of Art's chief curator, Dan Cameron, takes pride in the artists his state has produced from the 20th century to the present. He and his staff showcase a diverse range of modern and contemporary Californian artists as well as art from around the world in an array of exhibitions and a permanent collection. Each exhibition uncovers a different facet of the art world. Past exhibitions have explored modern art between Picasso and Pollock, the changing language of art and design in the mid-20th century, and works by Ansel Adams and Andy Warhol.

Staffers also immerse visitors in their collections through after-hours events and guided tours of the museum's galleries. They also host events for families, during which kids can make artwork in the style of the exhibited artists or attend monthly shows with short films, music exploration, and live entertainment.
