Birthday Parties


We pride ourselves on the beautiful spaces within The Schiele Museum and we'll be happy to work with you to bring your special event to the museum! Birthday parties, weddings, receptions, corporate meetings, and many more events can find the perfect setup at a reasonable price with The Schiele Museum. 

A gathering beneath the stars of the Lynn Planetarium can certainly give things a dreamy twist, but a soirée at the feet of the T. rex makes for an event of truly epic proportions. From corporate breakfasts nestled in North Carolina habitats to romantic outdoor weddings on the Backcountry Farm to a childs birthday party, The Schiele Museum is the go-to place for unique and inviting spaces.
