The Neville Public Museum

 Bridging Communities, Connecting Generations

  

 

Gain exclusive access to areas of the museum that the public doesn’t normally see in this behind-the-scenes experience.

Expert staff will lead you through the history and heritage of Brown County, sharing insider knowledge and stories about our collection of priceless artifacts along the way.

During your two hour visit you will see:

1. Collections Storage Tour:  You’ll venture into the museum’s mysterious “third floor” where artifacts not on display are kept.  Staff will share just a few of the hidden gems in our collection that demonstrate the diversity of the artifacts that live right here in Green Bay.  Be prepared for the unexpected!

2.  Our Brown County Tour:  Explore our newest exhibit with one of the museum staff who helped create it!  You’ll hear stories about the artifacts that go “beyond the labels,” and get insight into how an exhibit like this is produced and brought to life.

3.  Outdoor Art Tour:  Everyday thousands of people drive by the museum, but most don’t know the stories of how these works came to reside on the museum’s grounds.  Discover how locally-produced artwork has been the foundation of the Neville Public Museum for over 100 years, and how art can help us understand our place in history.

Also included is a group welcome as well as time to visit the gift shop.
