I love all the Hands-On stations. Especially being able to look at live animals. The walking trails behind the museum are so gorgeous especially the little pond.

This is a small museum, but well done! Exhibits keep kids interested, especially the pirate ship playground. I thought the cost was reasonable as well. Take a trip! First Tuesday from 4 to 8 p.m. is free!

Schiele is a children, teen, and adult friendly museum. Reasonably priced. Includes outdoor farm with animals, mill, and more. You can also enjoy the planetarium.
