Through Feb. 19, visitors to Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney will be able to let their imagination run wild as they travel back in time along a half-mile nature trail with 10 life-size animatronic dinosaurs. During the eleventh annual Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs exhibit.
These animatronic dinosaurs move and roar, providing an experience sure to captivate visitors who will be able to also learn interesting facts about both herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. The exhibit features the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex, a spitting Dilophosaurus, a Utahraptor, a Parasaurolophus, an Iguanodon, an Ornithomimus, a Diabloceratops, an Elaphrosaurus, an Amargasaurus and a specially painted Stegosaurus. The artwork on the Stegosaurus is a result of the winning entry from this summer’s Design-a-Dino Coloring Contest.
Children will also have the opportunity to play on static baby dinosaurs and on a photo-op Pachyrhinosaurus. The Dinosaurs Live! exhibit trail is jogging stroller friendly (umbrella strollers not recommended), giving families and friends a unique, exciting and educational activity to experience together.
