60th Anniversary

Celebrating 60 years white

July 2021 marks the 60th anniversary of The Schiele Museum!


As a young boy, Bud Schiele loved nature and the excitement of discovering the world around him. He would find his partner in life who shared his passion for learning in Lily Hobbs, and together they built the foundation on which the museum would be laid.


This month, the Schiele Museum celebrates sixty years - 60 YEARS! Their dreams came to life with the opening of a 1,500 sq. ft. museum in 1961 that has expanded in size and impact in the community through the last six decades.


Their legacy lives on through our work to inspire curiosity and wonder about science and the natural world, to spark the imagination of the young and young at heart.


Celebrate with us as we commemorate this 60th Anniversary!
