Exhibit Opens: 23-Jun-2014

Safe Harbor: Lighthouses of Green Bay is a brand new exhibit opening June 24th on the museum’s second floor mezzanine. The exhibit features historic photographs of lighthouses in Green Bay from the Neville Public Museum’s collection, as well as recent photographs taken by lighthouse enthusiast George McCourt. Additionally, the exhibit features an eight-foot tall scale model of the 1848 Long Tail Point lighthouse, three Fresnel lens models, as well as two original lighthouse keeper logs from the Grassy Island Lighthouse. 

Visitors to the exhibit can now download a smartphone app, designed by Zymo Entertainment, that will extend the exhibit beyond the museum and allow visitors to navigate to the physical locations of the lighthouses.
