T-Rex at the Heard
T-Rex at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
You had a chance to see dinosaurs in the theaters this summer. This fall, come see them in a natural environment. From September 19, 2015 to February 21, 2016, visitors to Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary will be able to let their imagination run wild as they walk back in time along a half-mile nature trail with nine life-size animatronic dinosaurs during the ninth annual Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs exhibit. These animatronic dinosaurs move and roar, providing an experience sure to captivate visitors who will be able to also learn interesting facts about both herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs.
The exhibit features the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex, a frequent favorite among past guests. Other dinosaur replicas on exhibit include a spitting Dilophosaurus, a Carnotaurus, a Torosaurus, an Acrocanthosaurus, an Edmontonia, a Stegosaurus, a Styracosaurus, and a Pachycephalosaurus.
Children will also have the opportunity to play on static Apatosaurus and Parasaurolophus baby dinosaurs and on a photo-op T-Rex. The Dinosaurs Live! exhibit trail is jogging stroller friendly (umbrella strollers not recommended), giving families and friends a unique, exciting and educational activity to experience together. This annual exhibit is included in general admission and provides a great setting for a family outing on weekends and during the holidays.
