The Schiele Museum is a public institution established to promote awareness and appreciation for nature, and to instill a sense of individual and social responsibility for the diversity of the natural world and the role of humanity in it. The museum collects, studies, and preserves natural specimens and cultural artifacts. It uses educational programs, exhibits and publications to communicate to all possible audiences the variety of those objects, their environmental and social contexts and the history of their connections.
