Madison Children's Museum

Madison Children's Museum is the area's premier destination for hands-on fun and learning for the whole family! We have various exhibit areas throughout the museum, including: the Rowland Rooftop Ramble, a four-season green roof with animals and gardens; the Wildernest, a global village made with natural, local materials and designed for ages 5 and under; the Bakke Art Studio, where visitors can do a daily drop-in project and paint on windows; our newest exhibit From Coops to Cathedrals Nature, Childhood, and the Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright where kids can tinker, play, draw inspiration from nature, and explore just like the famous local architect did; and the DeAtley Community Concourse, a free-admission area with several exhibits and a pizza cafe. Our in-house team of artists and artisans designs, builds, and maintain the exhibits and features change continuously throughout the year. Keep your eyes out to see what's new! The museum also offers special programs and events daily; view our website calendar to plan your visit.


Madison Children's Museum is a community hub for children and families where play is serious business. Our exhibits are created just for our space by our on-staff team of artist and artisans, and in consultation with our child development experts!
