Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is a private (rather than publicly funded), nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Your support through financial contributions, such as your admissions fees, will help ensure the Heard will be sustained for future generations to enjoy. Our general admission prices are outlined below. 

The museum will close early at 3 p.m. to the public on June 3 to prepare for Date Night. (Visitors will not be granted entry after 2 p.m.). The museum will not reopen until the special event begins at 6:30 p.m. (special event tickets required).

Please note: if you are looking for ticketing information about any Heard special events, this information can be found on the event info page that pertains to that event. General admission tickets may not be used at special events. General admission may be purchased online or at the door.
