The Neville Public Museum of Brown County is an accredited cultural institution that champions history, science and art.

The museum seeks to bridge these multi-generational regional communities through engaging exhibits and dynamic programming.


"Science of Sound" Bam! Bang! Boom! Sound is all around us. Examine how sound is created by vibrations and moves in waves. Explore how sounds are made and heard in nature and discover how we can use technology to create and hear sound as well.

"Spectacular Science" is the Neville Public Museum’s newest gallery focused on subjects of science. This exhibit provides the museum the opportunity to present four different mini science exhibits with hands-on experiences.

"Spectacular Science" allows the museum to partner with organizations in our community. Videos in the exhibit allow guests to see N.E.W. Zoo zookeepers at work or hear a Brown County Public Health professional talk about how they work through the pandemic. Working with these partners provides great opportunities to learn more about organizations in our community.

"Spectacular Science" is located on the museum’s first floor and will rotate a themed section once a year.

In mid-August 2022, the Birds section of Spectacular Science will close in preparation for a new mini exhibit: Light. Light will open in early September 2022. Explore the science and physics behind light. Interact with experiments that demonstrate exciting concepts from reflection and refraction to how light impacts color. Come discover the wonders of light.

"HerStory" explores the changing roles and experiences of women in work, politics and their community through photographs, stories, and artifacts. Seventeen contemporary women were interviewed, their stories recorded, and personal artifacts loaned for this exhibition while fifteen additional female stories and artifacts demonstrate change within time from 1900 to present.
