  • Great pictures! This is definitely a local museum, but very well done and you'll learn a lot. If you are mobility-challenged, this will be a good place for a visit.  more »

  • Very interesting museum with great local information. 1895 train station is very cool. Very friendly folks at the History Center. The great thing this year is that it is FREE.
  • Terrific museum, wonderful for the whole family. Our children loved the hands on chidrens activity room and the adorable restored caboose, friendly staff ! Great deal free admission for all of 2017!
  • We love to visit during the Nights Before Christmas event and see the gingerbread houses made by the local school kids. There is a good deal of general history and a decent Civil War display, too. Local inventors and industry are also represented. And a complete cottage is on display indoors.
  • Absolutely wonderful people here. We had a great time talking with them about local history and their experiences in the area. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Madison.
  • Research library is awesome!
