Savage Ancient Seas
Opens Saturday, May 29
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 tickets today!

Under the Surface
Final month!
Water has the power to heal and restore. This power is on display in an exhibit of images created in a therapeutic program for young people struggling with mental health issues. The underwater images were taken by clients in a residential treatment program called Northwest Passage, which is based in Webster, Wisconsin. 

In addition to photographs, students wrote stories and poetry describing their experiences or feelings about the images. The result is a powerful exhibit on the healing potential of the natural world. This exhibit is on loan from the Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute.
NWTC Artisan Center: Milestones
Final month!
Milestones is a juried exhibition inspired by the Neville Public Museum's Collections featuring artwork of NWTC Artisan & Business Center artists. In preparation for the exhibit, artists were asked to select an item from the Museum's digital collections online or the new Generations Gallery from which to draw their inspiration.
Stay safe and stay tuned for updates!
