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.

PROS: ample parking; good exhibit about beer, the Packers, old time village , good exhibits outside the museum; CONS: short 1 hour visit; the children’s classroom could use newer equipment;

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

The Neville museum takes the visitor on a natural, geographical and human history of the Green Bay area from ice age to present day. The museum will soon (April 5th, 2014) host The Green Bay Packers temporary Hall of Fame (the permanent HOF is being... 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.
