Beauty of the Beasts
Opens June 26
The history of art teems with animals and may indeed have begun with images of beasts painted on the walls and ceilings of caves. Since that time, animals have appeared in the visual arts in everything ranging from decoration to symbols and allegories. This exhibit will share over 120 pieces of animal art from the Neville Collection and highlight fun animal facts. Get your your tickets here!

Savage Ancient Seas
Now open!
This is the only traveling exhibit featuring the marine fossil world of the Late Cretaceous Period. The exhibit is filled with huge carnivorous marine reptiles, gigantic flesh-eating fish big enough to swallow an adult human, flying reptiles with the wingspan of a small airplane, and the biggest sea turtles to have ever lived.

Unrivaled for their amazing varieties, voracious appetites, incredible teeth, and gaping jaws, the creatures of the Savage Ancient Seas are unlike anything known in today's world! Fantastic specimens are accompanied by accurate and engaging information via kiosks, touchscreens, graphic panels, mobile device content, big-screen videos, and real fossils for visitors to touch. Register for your spot today!
Reviving Traditional Arts of the Oneida
Final weeks!
This partnership between the Oneida Nation Arts Program, the Oneida Nation Museum, and the Neville Public Museum highlights the cultural legacy of basketry, pottery, and silverwork among the Oneida people. It showcases different aspects of these art forms among broader Haudenosaunee artists. The exhibit encourages the renewed interest in Native arts and culture in Northeast Wisconsin.
To put it in the Oneida language, Tetwátlatstá (day-dwa-tlats-staa), "We are going over it again." Get your tickets before the exhibit closes Sunday, June 13th.
