Tour the universe with Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary on the weekends this summer during our astronomy-themed "Magic Planet-oids." These short presentations in our Magic Planet theater will focus on recent space news and provide excitement and guidance for what to expect in the night sky. Magic Planet-oids are included in general admission and free for Heard Museum members.
These programs will be offered on Saturdays at 10:30 am, 11:20 am, and 12:30 pm and Sundays at 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm (watch the Heard's website for schedule variations). The topic for the June 29 and June 30 programs will be The Milky Way and Beyond. Learn more at www.heardmuseum.org/magicplanet
About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

Throughout her life, she witnessed the expansion of the Metroplex and foresaw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard's mission is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
