Neville Public Museum starting to take a hard look at itself

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Neville Public Museum will turn 100 in 2015, and museum officials are starting to take a look at its future.

The Neville invited a group of 100 visionaries and successful leaders from the community Tuesday night as they start work on a new master plan, capital campaign and the 2015 celebration. 

Museum Director Rolf Johnson says they have to make major changes in the next five years.

“From what kind of programs are we doing, what are our exhibits like and even if the building is working for us,” Johnson said.

Johnson envisions a new glass front facade. He questions if the museum should continue to be multi-disciplinary by offering art, history and science.

Johnson also wants to change the governance and turn the museum into a non-profit organization. 

“Right now the museum is a department of Brown County, but we have other bosses, the foundation, a governing board,” Johnson says “we need to have one leader and one budget that we can work with moving forward.

A new name for the museum is also being considered.
