Neville Public Museum
The Neville Public Museum is a general museum of art, history, and science. In 1915 a one-week exhibit showcasing Green Bay history was put on display in the basement of the local library. Today the museum has grown to over one million items in permanent collections. The museum is dedicated to the collection and preservation of these significant objects relevant to Northeast Wisconsin and United States history.
Located on the Fox River between downtown Green Bay and the Broadway District makes for a convenient walk from the KI Convention Center, several hotels, and many shops, bars, and restaurants. The Neville Public Museum serves as the trailhead for the Packers Heritage Trail.
Many events and hands on learning opportunities are held at the museum as well. The Discovery Room provides a distinct area devoted to hands-on history, science, and art activities for pre-school children and older. Explore other cultures with the International Film Series—a free screening of a different foreign film a couple times each month. Look to the skies with the Neville Public Museum Astronomical Society as they join together to share learnings, experiences, and a passion for the heavens. A complete list of museum events can be found on the online calendar.
