Where are we going today?

Indoor and outdoor installations in all mediums and sizes help coalesce to form an indelible impression of the region's natural history and cultural development. There is a strong component of natural history artifacts so there's always plenty for the younger kids to stare in awe at!

There are a combination of permanent and travelling exhibits ideal for reinforcing the founding principles of knowledge in repeat visits whilst maintaining that sense of excitement.

The Lynn Planetarium is also here offering celestial spectacles and educational resources.

    I thought it was great for learning about local history. They have a small walking trail, live animals on it and also inside the museum they have many exhibits including small, live animals. It was fun and educational.

    Save your money! The Shiele museum itself is not great either, but the planetarium show A Brief History of Time is painful to watch. Walked out halfway through it. Also the front desk helper was not helpful whatsoever. Inquired about the planetarium showings and got zero information, just directed toward a wall with brochures. Don't go!
