The Schiele Museum is a nice local museum with much to offer. For a small town museum, it is very family friendly and also offers rooms for small events. If you ever get a chance to visit, I highly recommend.

The Schiele Museum is a very nice attraction for a smaller town. They have quite a bit of local flora and fauna and rotating exhibits throughout the year. The best part of the museum is the planetarium. The seating is excellent, the shows very well...More

Dino bones, local flora and fauna. Enough to interest both kids and adults. This is a good break in the day. It's small enough to be able to spend just a few hours.

We were disappointed that the building did not have automatic entry doors for disabled. It was hard to handle the chair and door at the same time. Inside there were ramps for walkers, wheelchairs and strollers going down to the basement. However coming up from...More

Had never been to Schiele, and we were definitely glad we came. The kids really enjoyed the nature trail and the dinosaur exhibit. The old mill near the creek is a great spot for photos and the kids enjoyed sticking their toes in the water....More

No charge for Schiele Museum members & $6.00 for nonmembers. I think seniors 65 or older is reduced but well worth the modest admission prices. You won't regret going to see the great attraction.
