    Why should kids get to have all of the dinosaur fun? Join us for a special adults-only evening filled with dinosaur-themed activities to celebrate the opening week of our 13th Annual Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs exhibit.

    Enjoy a guided hike around the dinosaur exhibit trail with Heard trail guides. You’ll get to participate in a hands-on make and take craft project and receive a fossil to take home, too. You’ll also learn about new things paleontologists have discovered about dinosaurs since the days you learned about them as a kid. During a presentation with a Heard animal ambassador, we’ll also talk about what makes lizards different from dinosaurs. This event will feature our new 4-foot diameter Magic Planet digital global display as it illustrates the Earth’s geology during the time of the dinosaurs.

    $19/non-member; $16/Heard Museum Members* (Ages 18+). Pre-registration is required. Click here to register.

    Closed toed shoes, long pants, and bug spray are recommended. Participants will be outdoors for approximately an hour.
