The Heard will close at 3 p.m. on 10/16/21 in preparation for Halloween at the Heard.
(No admissions after 2 p.m. on this date.)
Halloween at the Heard is SOLD OUT. Special Event tickets required. The ticket link below is for General Admission.
Heard general admission provides access to our permanent and seasonal exhibits, gardens, our nature trails and more. With 289 acres, the possibilities for fun with nature are infinite! Bring the family, have a picnic at one of our tables, and make a day of it.
All visitors to the Heard are required to purchase a general admission ticket or become a Heard member. General admission is not valid for special events or educational programs requiring separate fees.
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.
Please consider adding a small, tax-deductible donation to your ticket purchase today. The Heard is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and depends on the support of the public. Your support will help us continue to bring nature and people together. A gift as small as $5 could help feed two of our snake animal ambassadors for a week, for example.
