In the heart of Gastonia, but with the feel of a forest. Walk the trails, enjoy the wild life. Go inside to view ever changing exhibits. Great for the family or lone walker.

Went and saw one of their "movies" in the round theater. Kids loved! Then toured the inside museum. Very entertaining and a great learning visit for young and old!

I have been visiting the Schiele since I was a kid and I never get bored! They have added some things and taken some away, and many have stayed the same. They usually have rotating exhibits different times of the year and the planetarium is great! There is also a nature trail out back with exhibits and live animals. This... More

This is a must see destination when you are near Gastonia, NC! The Schiele museum is a real crown jewel of natural history as well as historical information with numerous fine exhibits spread throughout several large buildings, trails to walk & experience life many years ago. The "green roof" is awesome on the latest addition to the Schiele Musem &... More

I have been to the museum several times this summer. A family membership was purchased for us by my mother. I took my 2 daughters (3 & 8) each time. My older daughter, surprisingly, was more scared of some of the exhibits than my younger daughter. The taxidermy animals and mannequins of prehistoric people creeped her out. My younger daughter...

The walking trail was very neat! It was probably the best part of the whole thing for me. They had renovations going on the roof. It was very noisy. It made me leave the area I was in quickly because of it. Overall it was a good little museum. Worth the $7

Big city atmosphere in a small town. My grand kids love to see the exhibits as well as the live animals.

The Schiele Museum is starting to show it's age and has a lot of stairs to go up and down between exhibits. The permanent exhibits are good for young children to learn the names of animals. There is a planetarium and I recommend you check their website for times of shows. The outside exhibits are interesting and there is a... More
