12th Annual Dinosaurs Live!

Now – February 18, 2018

NBC 5 and The Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary invite you to experience Dinosaurs Live! starting Saturday, September 2, 2017 through February 18, 2018.

Exhibitors will be able to let their imagination run wild as they travel back in time along a half-mile nature trail with ten life-size animatronic dinosaurs. During Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs exhibit, these animatronic dinosaurs will move and roar, providing an experience for all. This exhibit will also offer interesting facts about both herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs.

Children will have the opportunity to play on stationary baby dinosaurs and on a photo-op Tyrannosaurus rex. This year’s exhibit will also feature a new outdoor fossil dig to inspire future paleontologists. The Dinosaurs Live! exhibit trail is jogging-stroller friendly, giving families and friends a unique, exciting and educational activity to experience together.

The exhibit features the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex, a spitting Dilophosaurus, a Therizinosaurus, a Triceratops, a Styracosaurus, an Allosaurus, a Tarbosaurus, a Brachiosaurus, a Baryonyx and a specially-painted Megalosaurus. The artwork on the Megalosaurus will reflect the result of the winning entry from this summer’s Design-a-Dino Coloring Contest.
