Creepy Nature is designed to share the actual science of weird and unusual plants and animals. This exhibit features horror fiction concepts like vampires, zombies, mummies, and alien invaders!
Discover the truth behind these mythologies as you follow the expedition of our hero through undersea perils, mysterious jungles, forbidding swamps, and an abandoned mine. What lurks in these environments is stranger than fiction – it’s Creepy Nature! Creepy Nature features comic art by illustrator James Lyle from Waynesville, NC.

Sponsored by PNC Bank, the exhibition is designed to share the actual science of weird and unusual plants and animals. “PNC has worked with The Schiele Museum over the past six years on numerous exhibits, but this one is particularly exciting as makes it fun for children and the community to interact with the science of the exhibit,” said John Forgan, Senior Vice President, Corporate & Institutional Banking. “Helping children get a great start in life and learning about our world is critical to their development."
Journey through time to the Mesozoic Era - the Age of Dinosaurs - as you walk among these full-bodied models and experience what life might have been like for these incredible creatures. Marvel at the sheer size of these prehistoric beasts and face off against a charging Triceratops or watch as the Deinonychus stalks its prey. Throughout the Dino Safari exhibit, you'll see some of your favorite dinosaurs and learn about a few more of these spectacular beasts. You'll also get to see actual dinosaur fossil specimens and casts from the Schiele Museum's collection that help demonstrate how the science of paleontology provides clues about extinct ecosystems.
