Join the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. for a family-friendly, safe environment to experience the joy of trick-or-treating that many of us experienced as children. Don't misunderstand us: Halloween at the Heard will be spooky! Kids will trick-or-treat on the Dinosaurs Live! Live-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs trail and have the opportunity to participate in a costume contest for kids ages 12 and under.
Also, enjoy an evening full of other fun activities including a presentation of the PG-rated movie Night at the Museum - Battle of the Smithsonian on the Heard's outdoor amphitheater stage. 94.9 KLTY will be live on-site from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. NEW THIS YEAR -- For those who dare: take a trail detour after the movie through our "Haunted Forest" where you may encounter a ghost or creature of the night! Visitors will get to walk through the Heard's newest indoor exhibit, Animal Superheroes, which features the special abilities of our very own animal ambassadors, and an outdoor exhibit, Animals of the World, which will be open until dusk. Guests will have the opportunity to pose for a photo at the Clix Photography booth. Concessions will be available, including grilled hot dogs provided by Whole Foods Market.
The Heard recommends that guests bring insect repellant, flashlights, blankets and/or stadium seats for use during the movie. Guests may also bring their own picnic dinner and non-alcoholic beverages.
Tickets are on sale now! Tickets have sold out each year, so The Heard encourages guests to purchase theirs as soon as possible. Admission to this event is $15 for adults, $10 for children ages 3-12, and free for children ages 2 and under. See heardmuseum.org for more details.
