About the Generations Gallery
For over a century the Neville Public Museum has collected and preserved history. From fossils to footballs, one can explore our vast collection through a variety of themes and the stories of the people of Northeast Wisconsin in the Generations Gallery.
Our Generations Gallery uses dynamic themes and displays of local history. We aimed to create engaging experiences throughout the gallery by using different interactive elements. Each experience had a specific goal in mind and complimented the section it’s located in. Some of these include: a dig pit, artifact drawers, touch specimens, and historic film segments. There are several parts in the gallery where we witness generational interaction between adults and children.
This core gallery renovation reflected highly on professional institutional best practice, on the museum staff, and on the Green Bay community. We are happy to accept the 2021 Museum Exhibit Award from the Wisconsin Historical Society for this capital project.
