A small but well organized museum on the Fox River banks in downtown Green Bay. 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.

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.

The Neville always has many different displays and exhibits going and one never knows what to expect when you get there. It's very clean and well lit and the displays are all within easy access to anyone who wishes to check them out.

As a teacher of 4th gr and 8th gr I had the pleasure of taking several groups on a historic adventure through the Neville Museum. Plan out how you want your students to participate in their exploration. We always had a study guide to help focus their activities.

The Neville Public Museum in Green Bay is easy to spot because of the large dinosaur outside its doors. This museum has traveling exhibits as well as permanent exhibitions. It shows the history of Wisconsin from the ice age through the World Wars. It also has areas for children to explore, bringing fun to all ages.

Made the trip from Milwaukee today to see the HC Prange windows exhibit and "Bruce the Spruce". HUGELY DISAPPOINTING! With all the Prange stores around, the window displays were pretty thin; and many not even working I understand they've been in storage for 30+ years; but unless you have more; you shouldn't be displaying this as a major exhibit.
