The Neville Public Museum

Alice in Dairyland

Exhibit Opens: 28-Jan-2017
Exhibit Ends: 09-Jul-2017


In 1948, the first Alice in Dairyland was crowned in celebration of Wisconsin’s centennial. Each year since, one Wisconsin woman has been selected to become Alice. Alice may have started as a beauty queen but today she is an educated and experienced public relations professional. These days, Alice travels the state educating audiences about the $88 billion economic impact and importance of Wisconsin’s diverse agriculture industry.

Discover the impact Wisconsin agriculture has on our everyday lives along with Alice in this hands-on exhibit.
