Schiele Museum of Natural History [NC]

The Schiele Museum of Natural History involves visitors in the exploration of natural history, as well as human prehistoric history and Native American history. The museum maintains a seasonally-open Catawba Indian village, a recreation of a Stone Age site of human habitation, and a living-history 18th-century backcountry farm.

The museum offers exhibits, living-history demonstrations, programs and guided tours for school groups, planetarium shows, professional development for educators, and other recreational and educational events.
