The Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney invites you and your family to visit the life-size animatronic dinosaurs on display Oct. 2 through Feb. 3.

Let your imagination run wild as you walk back in time along a half-mile nature trail with nine life-size animatronic dinosaurs. Be captivated as you watch the dinosaurs move and roar while you learn interesting dinosaur facts.

Check out both herbivores and carnivores and the return of the infamous 46-foot-tall Tyrannosaurus Rex!

Dinosaurs on exhibit include a spitting Dilophosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Acrocanthosaurus, Edmontia, Edmontosaurus, Ornithomimus, Carnotaurus and two Coelophysis. 

Kids will also enjoy playing on the static Apatosaurus and Parasaurolophus dinosaurs. 

The dinosaur trail is also jogging stroller friendly. The exhibit will give families and friends a unique, exciting and educational activity to experience together and provide an ideal family outing during the holidays
