GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Neville Public Museum is asking Brown County for $100,000 in seed money to begin a master plan for the museum. 

The request is to use the county’s excess reserves in the general fund.

Neville Executive Director Rolf Johnson says their two big goals are to attract more visitors and bring more private donors to the table. It will all be part of a new master plan for the museum’s future.  

“This will help transform and re-imagine the Neville Museum as we get ready to enter out second century of service,” Johnson said.

Come 2015, the Neville will be celebrating its centennial anniversary. 

Some ideas for the museum include incorporating more technology to have a more engaging experience, adding more versatile space for larger events, update permanent exhibits, and to get the museum on a national stage. 

“Great cities have one thing in common, they have great musuems" Johnson said, "We have a wonderful museum, but we still have a long way to go to really help the community in the way we would like to.”
