Ether's(7) Review:
   The Heard museum is a cool place. What I liked the best was the snakes because I got to see all kinds of dangerous snakes. My little sister was scared but I wasn't because snakes are cool and they shed their skin. The guy there told us that snakes are family with lizards he knew a lot about snakes. Then we got to see the dinosaurs they looked so real so my dad took a picture of me sticking my head in the mouth of the dinosaur and my friends thought it was cool. There was a lot to see and my dad said we can come back for my birthday and bring my friends. I can't wait.

Dad's Notes:
   The kids loved it. A hidden adventure close to Dallas. My daughter enjoyed the butterfly exhibit and was able to learn about them. The staff there is knowledgeable and have a great way of explaining the animals and their habitats. This is a great place for those interested in wild life. The snake exhibit features a lot of the local snakes from Texas. The Dinosaur trail is unreal, they were life size, it felt as if we were back in the time of the dinosaurs. We were able to enjoy a picnic in the Bluestem Trail which the kids enjoyed.

  The Heard Museum has many educational programs for the family. They hold summer camp sessions for the kids which is educational and affordable. The kids get to learn about different animals and how they should take care of them. You can't beat having a great time with the kids at a place that is informative, fun and affordably priced. This is also a great place to host a wedding. From what I heard from a friend who attended a wedding there, its a beautiful setting that is nature filled and overlooking the ponds.
