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. Or, if you're ready to become a Heard Museum member, which includes general admission, click here to join now.

The Heard will be closed to the public on October 1. Special event tickets are required on that date.

The museum will close early at 3 p.m. to the public on October 21 to prepare for Halloween at the Heard. (Visitors will not be granted entry after 2 p.m.). The museum will not reopen until the special event begins at 6 p.m. (special event tickets required).
