Located in downtown Green Bay along the Fox River, the Neville is a general museum of art, history and science, accredited by the American Association of Museums.

The Meyer Theatre’s story began on Valentine’s Day 1930 when it opened as one of the many Fox Theatres blossoming around the country. Fox Theatres Inc. spared no expense creating the lavishly-equipped vaudeville house and movie palace. The company was forced into bankruptcy in 1933, but the theatre survived and was operated as the Bay Theatre until 1998.
The theatre is an eclectic blend of colors and styles that can best be defined as Spanish Atmospheric. Heavily textured plaster, decorative columns with gold leaf, intricate painted designs and statues adorn the building.
The mission of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, is to present a wide variety of cultural, entertainment, and educational performing arts to the Northeastern Wisconsin community while also serving as a home for local and University performing arts ensembles.
