  • 3 floors of contemporary art in a beautiful building. Located in downtown Madison, so the location is fantastic. No complaints here, just go an experience the museum yourself. Plan to spend 1-2 hours here.
  • Relatively small gallery and exhibition space but "Big" exhibit was very well curated and the roof top sculpture garden and overall layout were fun and interesting
  • Excellent free museum, if you enjoy contemporary art.
  • Not exactly my cup of tea but a very interesting, and free museum
  • Beautiful art museum with friendly staff.

Where to stay in Madison

The university and state politics draw a constant stream of visitors to Madison, so you'll find a wide range of accommodations in the city. Numerous hotels circle the campus, and some of these overlook Lake Mendota. Moving onto the isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, you'll find a handful of charming inns and bed and breakfasts, most of which offer panoramic views of the water. Areas south of Lake Monona feature national chain hotels and motels. These sit farther away from the action around campus and the State Capitol Building, but they can also offer water views and quiet settings near some of Madison's many parks.
