We came in winter so we couldn't really experience the outdoor village, and we had a 1-year-old so we didn't do the planetarium, however there were still plenty of other great exhibits there! We enjoyed all of the exhibit halls, and were pleasantly surprised at the very large mineral/gemstone collection. Great visit!

We are from Raleigh, our museums have a lot more money but although this one is older the museum is awesome and I suggest anyone in the area visit. The layout of the exhibits and the detail is really better than any museum we have seen and that include Raleigh, Boston, Atlanta, etc. They have cool structures outside as well.... More

i went here with my wife and 6 year old daughter. She just finished studying the solar system and we thought this would be a great way to "conclude" the unit, something that would bring it all together and make space exciting... Well, we could not have been more disappointed. We live in an amazing age of technology, and that... More

This is a great place to take the family. We go about twice a year. Their exhibits change so it's always something new. They also have a small outside area with a mini-trail and some buildings representing the time when America was being settled. There are fees for the main exhibits, but other areas of the museum are free.

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
