October 2020
Final Month!
Check them out before this spectacular exhibit goes extinct! Featuring lifelike re-creations of popular dinosaurs, Amazing Dinosaurs immerses visitors in activities that cover the lifespan of these magnificent creatures, from birth to adult. Discover which species lived first and last, dig for hatchlings and adult dinosaur fossils, explore a dinosaur habitat, and present how you think dinosaurs looked and behaved. Reserve your visit date and time here!
2020 Day Camp
Selected Thursdays
8:45 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
The Neville is excited to offer weekly day camps this fall. Whether you are looking for a break in a long week of virtual school, need a few hours of childcare to run errands, or want to have some time to get your own work done from home, our drop-off day camps will keep the kids busy with some fun activities. Dates and themes this month include:

  • October 1 Life in the Past - Learn about how life was different or the same for people who lived in our community 100, 1000, or 10,000 years ago.
  • October 8 Ancient Animals - Wisconsin is home to thousands of animals today, but there are thousands more that lived here at one time that no longer live anywhere…learn about the extinct animals that used to call our community home.
  • October 15 Recycled Racers - Use engineering skills to build “prototypes” to build race cars out of recycled materials and participate in our Recycled Racer Rally.
  • October 22 History's Mysteries - The museum is home to thousands of unique, rare, and just plain weird artifacts. Learn about some of our favorites, and discover favorites of your own!

Click here to register for one or multiple dates. Registration for each Thursday closes the preceding Friday at noon. The cost for museum members is $15 and $20 for non-members.

NOTE: We require a minimum of five campers per date. If attendance falls below that level we will transfer your registration to a different date or issue a refund.
