All aboard the Green Bay Packers time machine

Things keep moving on for the Green Bay Packers and much of it is moving on with the Lambeau Field renovation.

Builders have stadium areas tied up due to construction updates. The stadium’s Packers Hall of Fame will be closed during the ongoing work on the Atrium, with reopening not scheduled until next year, 2015.

Beginning April 4, the Packers Hall of Fame will open its all-new “Touchdown” exhibition, at the new home for historic memorabilia, at the Neville Public Museum, located in the downtown area, where fans can find a variety of transportation methods, and abundant parking will be available.

For more information, call the Neville at (920) 448-4460. Packers events there are well worth investigating, but plan ahead. Traffic construction season can create slow-downs and road closings.  You’ll save time and money on fuel to check things out ahead of your trip.

For those of you who have not experienced the Packers memorabilia the Packers Hall of Fame offers, come on back to see the constant new updates.  This rich history the Packers offer, has been created through the years, with some great seasons; it’s well worth a visit to this all-new location.

For the “die-hard fan,” you’ll want to hang around the exhibit until your shoes wear holes in the soles, so plan to spend some time inside. It’s not just seeing this kind of adventure;  it’s more like absorbing the history written into the team’s legend, with nearly 100 years in the making as an NFL team, that went on to become the winningest franchise in NFL history, renowned and known as “champions.”

Green Bay was not called “Titletown” without good reasoning behind it. The winning, the tradition, you can find it deep inside this exhibit, going back to the roaring-20s, or perhaps you prefer the Lombardi Dynasty, which has been a staple of Green Bay’s fame for decades.

Maybe your favorite comes from the two “Mikes” coaching championships, (Holmgren & McCarthy) with bits and pieces of milestones on players, teams, coaches or significant games played during the years, including championships and Super Bowls, to go along with the “25-year drought” between Vince Lombardi and Mike Holmgren’s tenures.

You can find it all at the Packers Pro Shop, but for now, check out the Neville Museum, located at 210 Museum Place, Green Bay, WI 54303.

For more information, call (920) 448-4460.  Plan ahead and check before you drive, but most of all make it a safe trip.

Enjoy!
