Super science and history at the SchieleFlag review
The Schiele is a fabulous, family-friendly museum of science and natural history. The permanent exhibits are primarily of mounted animals, geology, and people groups, but the temporary exhibits (usually for a few months) are quite good. Don't miss the hands-on children's room or the planetarium. Also, there is a living history farm, with a trail to Catawba and stone age villages. Pack a picnic and enjoy a good hike. Ice cream is very reasonably priced in the gift shop for a post-visit treat!
Tips for Families
Check the website for reenactors -- they are great! If your child doesn't like loud noises, check upon farm area entry to see if they will be using muskets. If they are, they'll warn you of the time.
