  • Heard museum has things for families with small children through adult history buffs. We just missed the robotic dinosaurs which are only there from September-February, so that was very disappointing....  more »
  • My wife, adult son, and I spent two to three hours walking around this wildlife sanctuary and observed snakes, lots of birds, frogs, turtles, etc. We especially enjoyed the trails around the lake.  more »

  • Great! Really neat place to see. Adults and kids alike enjoyed. Lots of hands on exhibit and animals too. Staff, Laura Ragan especially, were knowledgeable and so friendly.
  • The Heard musuem is a hidden natural gem and is one of the last areas in Mckinney that hasent been developed. It consistence of a main building with many learning activities, natural musuem, and classroooms. Then you have the outdoor area where you have miles of hiking trails and even an old rustic scale town. They have butterflies during the summer and life size dinosaurs starting in September. The heard is also part of the Dallas musuem group so if your a member it's free. Adults are usual 9, Seniors 6 etc... if your visiting Mckinney don't miss this wonder of Texas.
  • Quant little museum in McKinney with a rich history. Great spot for the kiddos!
  • Very fun and nice place to get outdoors. They are partnered with the perot and fort worth childrens museum. Really enjoy coming here.
  • Nice place to walk. Good trails and an interesting dinosaur exhibit. However, it's sad that they keep innocent animals in cages despite being a nature reserve. I understand that they are rescued animals but I'm sure that most of them can be rehabilitated back into the wild on site in the nature reserve. Set them free!
