Madison Children's Museum

The new Madison Children’s Museum is an award-winning destination for fun family activities and hands-on learning! Visit our inventive city of Possible-opolis for ages 6 and up, and our four-season Rooftop Ramble, with animals and gardens. Kids under 5 have a place of their own in the Wildernest, a global village made with natural, local materials. There’s always something new to do at Madison Children’s Museum, where our mission is to connect children with their family, their community, and the world beyond through discovery learning and creative play. Through July and August Madison Children's Museum is offering daily tours of the 1830's Brand Log Cabin. Come see and learn about a part of Wisconsin's past. Tours last a half hour, leaving plenty of time for free exploration.
