...especially since it's the temporary home of the Packer Hall of Fame. A must-see shrine for any Packer fan, nicely arranged, displayed, and presented. Worth a visit even when the HOF returns to Lambeau; non-Packer fans will find engaging treatment of GB/Wisconsin geology, history, economy, located on the banks of the river, within walking distance of other places of interest.

The Packers Hall of Fame was housed in the Neville Public Museum while the normal one is being renovated (this is the primary reason we went there). The Packers portion of the museum was rather boring. This would be a great place to bring kids, but for adults not so much. I actually enjoyed the rest of the museum much... More

They have some Packer stuff now and not being a sports fan, I thought that might not be all that interesting. However the ties to the community and vintage memorabilia are well done. The permanent display covers the areas history well including some very nice pieces. You can spend a couple or many hours enjoying the exhibits. They had torn... More

We booked a trip on the Packer Heritage Trolley Tour and prepared to hear all about the storied team.Susan the guide was amazing. Almost 2 hours of non-stop information on the history of the Green and Gold. The museum houses some of the super bowl trophies while the Hall of Fame at Lambeau is being re- built. You can even...

For $5.00 a person, this was a nice place to learn about Green Bay history. Right now it also houses some of the Packer Hall of Fame items until the construction for the new one is completed at Lambeau in the Spring of 2015. Make sure you go to second floor for more touring as it can be easy to... More

A nice walk through the history of the local area, starting with the Ice Age (going through an ice cave) up through roughly the first half of the 20th century. The kids are always a bit scared of the mammoth, but they like the rest of it... highlights include details on the Peshtigo fire, a look at beavers, and ice... More

We go to the museum a few times a year - It is a great place to take the kids to learn. They also have some traveling exhibits - some are geared toward kids, and they love it. Great addition to Green Bay!

We visited the Museum to experience the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame memorabilia. It really put us in the mood for Football season. Very interesting and informational. If you visit this Museum you might also have a craving for beer. The second floor has a sort of beer and brewery museum. Great photos of the past.

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.
