After sixteen months of hard work, the Neville Public Museum is proud to announce that the renovated core gallery on the second floor is now open to the public.
We invite you to visit the Generations Gallery to see the public favorites, such as Stompy the Mastodon and the Ice Harvesting video in their new environment as well as brand new displays featuring exposed collections and art from the permanent collection only seen in collections storage until this day.
Speakers will include Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach, Neville Public Museum Director Beth Kowalski-Lemke, Neville Public Museum Foundation Executive Director Kasha Huntowski, and Neville Public Museum Curator Lisa Kain.
How Did We Get Here? The Neville Public Museum began over a century ago, in 1915, with a small exhibit organized by the former Green Bay Art Club in the downtown Kellogg Library. The exhibit was very popular and quickly outgrew its basement room. 
By 1927, thanks to the generous support of the Neville family, a new Museum was built — the Neville Public Museum. The exhibits and rapidly growing collections quickly outgrew this building, too.  
In 1980, in a community-wide show of support, Brown County voters approved a tax levy to fund the construction of a new Museum building. The current Neville Public Museum building opened in 1983.
