My husband and I travel quite a bit and we always try to take in at least one museum on each trip. This is one of the best we have been too. Lots of local info about Grey Bay and forts, but much, much more. Also had information on the Ice Age, Galaxy, and History. Thought we would only be... More

A couple at dinner recommended a "small museum with lots of local history, even a movie about the toilet paper industry." We found the Neville with a display (no movie) about the toilet paper industry and other local history. Worth the visit.

From the website, I expected a small museum that would be mildly interesting. We spent 3 hours here and could have spent many more. You can see the history of the Green Bay area from the Pleistocene Era to today. View mammoth tusks, a monstrance used by Jesuit missionaries, loads of Victorian dishes and household goods, and a car from... More

The museum is very nice, however The special exhibits are very small. The nice thing about the museum is that most things are hands-on for the kids which keeps them excited and engaged. There is a nice section on local history but overall the museum is very small.

We came up to see the Tall Ships Festival and took advantage of the parking package with the museum. The museum has some really nice exhibits and very friendly staff. The location right on the river is nice as well. Lots of hands on exhibits. The entry fee is very reasonable.

Yes, my grandsons love dinosaurs! Besides a great exhibit on Imperial Ice Age there was lots more to see. Great museum with a really nice gift shop. If you are a Veteran, ask for the discount. They are very good about this. Adults and kids will love this museum

We had some extra time in Green Bay and came upon this museum. It was well worth stopping into. Very nice exhibits, informative and well done. The staff are friendly and helpful. good place to spend some time learning history of the area. The grounds are beautiful, right on the water with beautiful flowers and rest areas.

We really enjoyed our visit at Neville Public Museum. The Fort Howard displays were very educational (we had never been to Green Bay before). I would highly recommend a visit here for a nice overview of how Green Bay came to be...

Part of the museum covers the history of Wisconsin beginning in prehistoric times, as well as a look into 19th century Green Bay. But other exhibits are constantly changing. You could visit the museum several times a year and see new things. Great location, right on the Fox River. Free parking, off-street.
