  • My son is studying architecture and invited my husband and me on a tour. I had been to Monona Terrace before for conferences, and I never knew Frank Llyod Wright was the designer. The tour costs $5.00...  more »
  • Attended an event at the convention center, wall to wall people, and the staff handled it very well. Beautiful setting and facility.  more »
  • Have been only on the roof of the home for dinner and night. Beautiful views of the State Capitol building from here. Match your fountain.

  • We held our wedding reception at Monona Terrace on October 28, 2017, and are very pleased with how our event turned out, as well as with all the planning leading up to it. At the outset, Breanne was helpful and no-pressure as we considered potential venues. Once we chose Monona Terrace, Marcia and her staff provided clear guidance and answered all our questions along the way. We particularly enjoyed the tasting where you get to sample all the food offerings to make your selections! Matt was very helpful finalizing all details the week of, and the night itself came off without a hitch. The service staff was attentive and friendly (they even set aside a few of each appetizer for us at the head table, a nice touch), the food was delicious (a common compliment from our guests), the room set-up was flawless, and things just ran very smoothly. Would definitely recommend!
  • Awesome place. An iconic Madison landmark. Be sure to check out the history of Frank Loyd Wright while you're there!
  • A beautiful convention center set right in the heart of downtown Madison on lake Monona, the Monona Terrace was originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright but was not constructed until the 1990s. It's location and views are its key selling factors.
  • Monona Terrace is an excellent venue for business meetings and conferences, both large and small. The on-premises food services are very good, and there's ample parking.
  • Monona Terrace Convention Center was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It is a beautiful facility overlooking Lake Monona in Madison Wisconsin. It can be easily seen reflecting in lake Monona day or night. Parking is available inside and out. It is located behind the Hilton hotel, just off capital square in Madison, Wisconsin.

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.
