A small museum on the river in Green Bay. Nice Green Bay Packer exhibit and interesting film and display on the local ice harvests from days gone by. Enjoyed walking through the museum and experiencing the exhibits.

Spent the day there with a group of kids... lots of neat displays! And, many opportunities to interact with something for the younger children. Fascinating!! The gift shop is interesting, too! Could have spent more than the day there... so much to read.

We've visited this museum off and on for over 30 years when we visit Green Bay from northern Michigan. Their permanent exhibit about the history of the area is truly remarkable and can be enjoyed by folks of all ages, especially children. They also have rotating exhibits that are always interesting: sometimes art, sometimes history. Their gift shop always has... More

We stopped at the Neville Public Museum because of the video game exhibit. It was fun for all of us to play retro games and compete for a high score. We enjoyed walking through the other exhibits. It was a nice afternoon. We would visit again!

I will always remember the explanation I overheard about all the cow tails it took to create the woolly mammoth; you'll just have to visit to find out more. This is an excellent small museum. The map of how the Green Bay connects to the Mississippi really helped to realize the growth of commerce in early Wisconsin history.

We were pleasantly surprised by this small museum. They do a great job on the history of Green Bay, and their special exhibit on video games of the past was very well done. Unpretentious, educational and a nice place to visit.

Current special exhibit was arcade games from years gone by. Our 9 year old was entertained on our childhood classics. Rest of museum highlighted a good cross section of NE Wis History and even had a section to suprise...the Packers.

5$ per person. There are always interesting things to see at the Museum. Currently they have an exhibit of 1980's era video arcade games; some of which you can play. Easy parking. Great stop on a rainy day.
