The Schiele Museum of Natural History & Planetarium
- Open Now
I always have fun going to the Schiele Museum. I went so I could walk around the outside exhibits The farm was kind of cool but everything is closed down so you can't see the Catawba village or inside the grist Mill pretty much all the buildings are locked up tight. But I had fun walking around.
First time going and I was not disappointed. My 4yr old LOVED the dinosaur exhibition! We will definitely be back again as it was worth the money. Some exhibitions along with the gift shop were closed due to covid but it was still very enjoyable. I just hope they will all be open next time we visit!
We got married here and it was the best place ever for a wedding venue! The staff was fantastic and the venue was so fun for all of our guests! They got to wonder around the museum and take it all in while we did pictures as well as before the ceremony, it gave the guests a little added adventure to the day and the picture we got to take with dinosaurs was so fun and unique! The reception room was big and beautiful and plenty of space for the dining area and the DJ/dance floor with a nice bit room beside for bar and desserts! Couldnt have asked for a better place to celebrate our magical day!! We did the wedding outside in the courtyard and it was beautiful with the sun setting and the pavilion seating saved us $ for chair rentals and all guests could easily see everything! A museum is a different cool spot for a wedding, keep it in mind its awesome and quite a treat for everyone! If we could redo wed pick the same spot, honestly now I just want to have a party there to have a party there because it was so awesome!
This was a gem for us that we did not know was here. First off, the price for admission you cannot beat. Anymore you could pay $20-$30 per person for an activity to do and this was $7 per person. There were neat exhibits here that all ages could enjoy. Inside and outside enjoyment. Recommend to take the family and enjoy!
The museum was better than what I expected it was awesome the Space Odyssey was great it takes from your seat. It just took you totally into space, it was the most exhilarating thing I've ever could ever imagine.
