The Big Deal: The Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

by Gila Espinoza 11 Oct 2017 8:30 AM

Like your animal adventures a little on the wild side? Then head to McKinney to the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary for their Dinosaurs Live! exhibit. This is the 12th year for the very popular life-size animatronic dinosaurs exhibit. There along the sanctuary’s nature trails, you’ll encounter a 46-foot T-Rex and nine new life-size animatronic dinosaurs. Visitors can see the dinosaurs move and hear them roar. Of course, there will be designated dinos available for photo ops!  And this year, the exhibit has added an outdoor fossil dig for little paleontologists. Dinosaurs Live! runs through February 18, 2018, at the Heard. But don’t wait until then to go see these giant Triassic reptiles. Enter and win this Big Deal and receive a family pack of 4 tickets. The tickets provide access to the Dinosaurs Live! exhibit, as well as general admission to the sanctuary. Passes may not be used during special events or educational programs and are not valid in combination with any other offer. Did we mention this exhibit was very popular?
