Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs will return to Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney, Texas, from September 2, 2023 through February 19, 2024. This seasonal, annual exhibit brings these ancient creatures back to life, allowing visitors to let their imagination run wild as they travel back in time along a half-mile nature trail with ten life-size animatronic dinosaurs.
During the 17th Annual Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs exhibit, these animatronic dinosaurs will move and roar and are showcased in a natural environment, providing an experience sure to captivate visitors. This exhibit will also offer interesting facts about both herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs.
Children and the young at heart can also play on stationary baby dinosaurs and photo-op dinosaurs. This year's exhibit will also feature an outdoor fossil dig to inspire future paleontologists.

About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing nature and people together to discover, enjoy, experience, restore and preserve our priceless environment. The Heard was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard at the age of 80. In a time when the rate of expansion of the Metroplex was slower than today, she foresaw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard's mission of bringing nature and people together is carried out through education, emphasizing an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
