  • My husband and I drove up from Manitowoc for lunch and the museum. Battling cabin fever, this was a perfect way to get out of the house for the afternoon. Fort Howard exhibit was interesting.  more »

  • Great place for families, with a lot of interactive exhibit elements. Great for some local Green Bay history. Great views from the building as well, situated in a great party of downtown GB.
  • This is an excellent museum with a theatre type area for presentations. I attended a lecture put on by the deputy director on shipwrecks of Green Bay. He did a spectacular and informative talk. Personally, I wish there were more art shows but I understand they are trying to reach a larger audience. They display the Ostensorium (a special container for holy artifacts) presented by explorer Nicolas Perrot to the Jesuit Mission at DePere and a painting in the stairwell depicts this scene. It was buried to protect it and was dug up by accident in 1802. It is the oldest surviving physical artifact of French settlement west of the Alleghenies.
  • As someone who loves to visit museums and has even volunteered at a couple of museums, I could not enjoy this museum. The displays were poorly laid out with replica items instead of the actual items. There are lighting and glass options that allow for viewing actual museum pieces without damaging them! The mannequins are not proportioned properly for the clothing displays and the descriptions for many of the displays were either unreadable or didn't match the items! There was one display for example that talked about the Sears and Roebuck catalog and that everything in the display could be found in the catalog, but there was not a single catalog or ad to compare to! Even a copy of the ad near the item would be helpful! One display listed a pattern machine by the treadle sewing machine and sewing basket, but was not there! Another display had items listed that included a plaque (which wasn't in the display) but not the canteen that WAS in the display! It was also hard to follow any type of theme. All of the displays are just kind of thrown into the main display room. There was a miniature farm that would be better displayed in a layout that actually looks like a farm instead of along a larger display on plain display cabinets. I could go on, but I think I have gotten my point across. I understand that funding can be an issue, but seriously! $5 for admission and you can't have things dusted?!
  • We started our tour and next thing closing time. Time few
  • It is a decent family-friendly museum in the heart of Green Bay. There's a variety of different exhibits that come and go through the museum. Worth visiting while in the area.
