Dear Friend,

 Great news!  The History Museum will host another world-class traveling exhibition. In the Fall of 2018 we partner with the Green Bay Packers, the NFL Hall of Fame, and others to host Gridiron Glory: The Best of the NFL Hall of Fame in celebration of the Packer’s 100th anniversary. The 5,000-square foot exhibition will offer challenging interactive experiences and over 200 prized football mementos including a customized section on our own Green Bay Packers.

And the news gets better. Thanks to the generous gift, of $150,000, from an anonymous donor the Museum has created a fund to support Gridiron Glory and future blockbuster exhibitions. The Board of Directors and I will be working to grow that fund over the next two years.

Our goals are to:

Enhance visitor experience at the History Museum
Grow audience and public profile
Create a sustainable stream of income to support world-class exhibitions for the people of the Fox Cities region and their visitors
Celebrate the great stories of our region
Offer broad context to our local experiences

There is a lot of work to do over the next two years as we prepare for Gridiron Glory. Will you consider making a year-end gift to the History Museum so we can further strengthen our operational capacity to host exhibitions that you can be proud to say you supported?


Matt Carpenter
