GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - A special holiday tradition is once again coming to life at the Neville Public Museum.
'Holiday Memories: Prange's Christmas Windows' is a re-creation of the iconic Prange's store fronts from the 1960's and 70's.
"We really re-created, not only a park-like feel, but the feel of the actual windows," Matt Welter, Curator of Education, said of this year's display.
Museum workers are put the finishing touches on the display Thursday. There are more than 60 original pieces from Prange's historic holiday windows.
"People have so many memories of the Prange's store," said Welter. "People will say, "I remember when the brown paper went up on the windows and we had to wait 20 days to find out what was behind those windows!'"
"That's what I remember," Louise Pfotenhauer, Curator of Collections, said. "Being little and waiting to see them."
Photenhauer said the snow babies, dolls and even Santa's chair were salvaged by a Prange's employee, then donated to the museum.
"For a child to see the moving figures and that they change ever year, it's great," added Pfotenhauer.
The display opens to the public on Friday. Kids can also see Santa and Bruce the Spruce.
