The Madison Children's Museum is a wonderful place. Madison is very lucky to have such a great place for families to go to. I have been to a number of children's museum, and this place far exceeds any of them.

Website parking information is tricky. Be sure to research online and look at the map closely before heading out.

Remember that the admission is for the day so you can break up the visit with a lunch in the cafe at the entrance or other outdoor or indoor restaurants in the Square area. Then you can return refreshed to more time at the museum. You have had your hand stamped so you can attend again.

Reasonably priced public parking garage is available directly across from the museum. Plan to spend 2-3 (or more) hours exploring! Friendly staff too!

From Our Editors

Across the three floors of the award-winning Madison Children's Museum, youngsters up to 12 years old explore, learn, and most important, have fun, in a variety of interactive environments. The littlest visitors can wander through the Wildernest, a rustic play-space built almost entirely from natural materials and sustainably harvested hardwoods. Toddlers climb into the raised treehouse or take temporary residence in a mini-village of activity huts made from straw and mud. Suspended above the Wildernest is the Bone Ridge, an elevated walkway designed to resemble the vertebrae of a large animal, perhaps a sea serpent or a giant's pet snake. Afterwards, visitors can refuel with a snack at The Roman Candle Sparkler, and maybe even dessert, made of cloth and felt, at Pie in the Sky Diner, all while the museum mascot, Gertrude the Cow, hangs from the ceiling and keeps watch.

The apex of MCM, the Rooftop Ramble, stands tall above a sweeping view of the Madison skyline, two lakes, and the museum itself. Kids can explore the wonders of the greenhouse and live-animal terrariums. This outdoor garden can be enjoyed by a wide age-range: adults sip cocktails among fluttering chickens and homing pigeons during private events--from weddings to family reunions and corporate events.

Madison Children's Museum is also a popular destination for birthday parties. The team makes each celebration unforgettable by taking care of all the essential party details, from providing the cake to adding a special theme, such as dinosaurs, legos, or mystery.
